Evert moved to Florida from St. Louis, Mo., in 1911. In 1913, he founded the
Maule Ojus Rock Company, a rock-crushing operation. The first rock used to ballast
the tracks of the Florida East Coast Railway came from the Maule quarries. In the
early 1920's, Evert discovered that by washing, screening, and controlling the
gradation of rock screening, always before considered to be a waste product, one
could obtain a highly satisfactory concrete sand; this discovery stepped up the
building history of Florida because until that time, all sand used in making concrete
had to be imported or unsatisfactory beach sand had to be used.
The rock-crushing operation was expanded to include a concrete block
plant; Evert's company also began manufacturing concrete floor tile, septic tanks,
concrete pipe, and other small concrete products. A line of building supplies was
added and in 1932 Evert's company opened a plant for fabricating reinforcing steel.
From that time, the business continually expanded; new plants, lumber yards, a
millwork shop, and a warehouse; eventually Maule Industries, Inc., as Evert's conpany
was eventually renamed, owned 18 plants in Florida. The company remained in the
Maule family until 1951, when it was sold to the Chemical Research Corp. of
Evert later lived at 2653 Flamingo Drive in Miami Beach, Fla., and owned a
summer house, "Maulecrest", at Chesnut Hill, Blowing Rock, N.C.
