Max Morehouse
Birth: Oct. 15, 1865
Lorain County
Ohio, USA
Death: Feb. 4, 1923
Baltimore City
Maryland, USA

Born in Elyria Ohio, Max Morehouse spent his adult life in the retail business owning stores in Elyria, Lorain, Findlay and Toledo Ohio before moving to Columbus Ohio in 1899 where he opened Rowland, Morehouse and Martens Co., a modern Department store that for a time challenged F.R. Lazarus and Company (located directly across High Street). Renamed Morehouse-Martens in 1908, the store became a favorite of Columbus' carriage trade society and was known for its highline merchandise. Morehouse-Martens also operated the first professionally staffed Beauty Salon in Columbus. Morehouse is also recognized by the Ohio Historical Society for commissioning the first commercial air-freight in the history of modern flight when he hired a pilot to fly a bolt of silk material from Dayton to Columbus. Morehouse was also the brother-in-law of Charles Anson Bond (both married daughters of Jasper and Mary Jane Monnett Hull of Findlay Ohio) founder of Bond Clothing, one of the nations first chain stores for mens clothing. (bio by: Stu (Koblentz) Haley)
