Jim White in the July 1973 CJOW shows off a CD 100.2 which was found in the Muncie Dump. It is fairly obvious that the 100.2 at least was made by Hemingray. [1]

Considering shards of both CD's of Surges were found at various times at known Hemingray dumping locations, I would say they were certainly produced at the Owens-Illinois Glass factory (formerly Hemingray). I suspect the letter from Babson mentioning Corning is just an error, maybe the author was thinking Owens-Corning instead of Owens-Illinois, or were plain guessing.

I also meant to comment that I believe all the CD 100.2's have come from the Hemingray dump and to my knowledge, there is just a small handful of them in the hobby.

You will note the large embossing, sloped up at an angle... I have never seen embossing sloped before, so I have to believe it was intentional... But why? ... PicturePoster #211200252

If you notice a lot of Surge advertisements, the SURGE is also angled upwards... PicturePoster #151703326

Coincidence or intentional? ... I could believe it is intentional...

Any thoughts on that?

I had one back in th eearly 70's and I found it at the dump. It was mint.
