I have found several references to an "H.A. McMaster" who worked for Libbey Owens Ford in the 1950s and whose name appears on several patent applications for the company. I found these references in the name index to the Journal of the Society of Glass Technology. I have photocopied the abstracts of the journal articles. If you'd like me to mail them to you, please send me your mailing address. There were many references to curved glass and LOF in these volumes as well, but there were so many that I just was able to photocopy the specific references to McMaster. If you have access to this journal through a local library, it might be worthwhile for you to take a look yourself.
In addition, have you contacted the University of Toledo library (which has a good collection of LOF archival materials)? http://www.cl.utoledo.edu/canaday/mssguide/mss-066.html
