|Death: ||Dec. 1, 1925|
1 of 15 children of the late Gustav Lansburgh (co-founder with James and Julius of Lansburgh & Bro Dept store in 1860 in Washington, D.C.).
Very much a beloved and well respected person in the history of Washington, D.C.
He was VP of the department store and his brother Sol was president.
His credo was 'Just call me Henry'. His listing in the store was 'The Office of Just call me Henry'.
His will decreed that he was to be buried in the ground and his marker was to say 'Call me Henry' and have just his birth and death dates - and nothing else. Within 5 years, an above ground crypt was to be constructed with the same data and nothing else above the archway.
His will was substantial - at least $1,000,000.00. And he spread it around to many charities and religions. He left his house to his longtime house keeper and included a nice monthly stipend for life plus some staggered cash payouts.
