Augustus Schultz
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: 1823
Death: Sep. 24, 1906
Philadelphia County
Pennsylvania, USA

In 1858, Schultz invented the process of tanning skins with chromium sulfate. This method produces durable leather with a bluish tint. By 1884, Schultz had received a patent for this two-bath process and went into business with Robert H. Foerderer in Philadelphia. Foerderer's self-titled leather manufacturing company became very successful due to Schultz's invention, and the chrome tanning process is still in use today.
