Lee Company, Inc. was founded in 1932 by Lon Lee as Lee School Supply in Terre Haute, Indiana. In the early days, when schools had very little money pencils, papers, chalk and erasers were a mainstay of the company. In addition to consumable school supplies, Lee School Supply also sold furniture, sporting goods, paper products, and in the 1950s even offered textbooks. After incorporating in the 1970s, Lee Company discontinued the sale of school supplies and focused more on school furniture and equipment.
