Retirement parties and visits of distinguished guests gave Burroughs reason to celebrate these out of the ordinary events. When Burroughs' top people retired, they were often honored at a luncheon or dinner, where they received toasts, speeches in their honor, and several gifts from the company. Likewise, when special guests of Burroughs were in town, they were often treated to meals, visits of the factory and facilities, and often tours of the city.
