In 1915, Lynn Mason Scofield started the company that first successfully manufactured reliable products for coloring concrete. Since then, demand for aesthetically attractive architectural concrete has increased dramatically. L.M. Scofield Company has expanded nationally and internationally and the diversity of products offered has grown along with the business now often referred to as “decorative concrete.”

In conjunction with its ninetieth anniversary, L.M. Scofield Company has sponsored a special issue of Concrete Construction magazine as a tribute to those who have shaped this business. The special edition contains a historical retrospective and some useful reference information, such as a “Contractor's Checklist for Integrally Colored Concrete Flatwork” and a glossary of terminology.
