Clara Stover
Birth: 1882
Death: Jan. 9, 1975

It was in Omaha that a fellow approached Stover with a chocolate-covered ice cream bar idea. Stover produced and sold it for a year. After the first mad surge for the novelty, sales dropped off and the Stovers bailed out with $25,000. This novelty was the Eskimo Pie. The Stover's moved to Denver where they began "Mrs. Stover's Bungalow Candies." In 1931 they moved their business to Kansas City. Many Kansas Citizens will remember the company headquarters at 1206 Main street in downtown Kansas City Missouri. Russell Stover candies became a multi-million dollar a year business with world wide sales. Russell Stover died in 1954, but his wife Clara carried on the candy business until selling it in 1960. (bio by: Bill Walker)
