Francis H. "Frank" Peters
Birth: 1838
Death: 1924

Francis was co-founder of the Peter's Dry Goods & Clothing Store in St. Louis. His son was employed by Chaflin Allen Shoe Company, which was in financial trouble. Francis & a partner by the name of Miller bought the shoe company & renames it Peter's Shoe Company. The company was expanded many times & eventually merged with another shoe company & became International Shoe Company. Francis was one of the founders of the North Side YMCA & contributed a considerable amount of money to get the organization started. (bio by: Connie Nisinger)
