Maurice J. Adler Is Dead
Prominent Business Man of Georgetown Will Be Buried Tomorrow
Maurice J. Adler, one of the oldest residents and most widely known business men of Georgetown, died shortly before 7 o'clock yesterday morning at his home, 3125 P Street Northwest. Mr. Adler suffered an attack of kidney trouble about two weeks ago and had been confined to his bed since that time. Until the development of this attack, however, he was actively engaged in his business.

Born in Georgetown, May 6, 1835 where his father had located on coming to this country from Germany. Mr. Adler obtained his education in the public schools of this city. He left school, however, while quite young and took a position with Stewart Muncaster, a hardware merchant. After serving in various capacities with this house, the young man gained control of the business when about 25 years of age. The business continued to grow and at the outbreak of the Civil War the new proprietor secured remunerative contracts with the Federal government to furnish supplies.

Mr. Adler's activities were not confined to the hardware business. At the time of his death he was Vice President of the Famers and Mechanics Bank of Georgetown; Vice President of the Georgetown Gaslight Company, a Director of the Capital Traction Company, the Union Trust Company and the Fireman's Insurance Company; President of the Masonic Hall Association and a trustee of the Oak Hill Cemetery Company.

He joined the Masonic order when a young man and was one of the oldest members of Potomac Lodge. He is survived by his wife, Mrs. Gertrude H. Adler and two daughters, Mrs. S. Percy Thompson and Mrs. C.M. Newman. The funeral will take place at 2 o'clock tomorrow afternoon from the home. Rev. James H.W. Blake, rector of Christ Protestant Episcopal Church of which Mr. Adler was a vestryman will conduct the services. Burial will be in Oak Hill Cemetery.
