Business magnate. He was one of the most succesful shoe manufacturers of his time, selling to almost 10,000 dealers worldwide. His main trade was in children's shoes and women's fashion styles, but during World War I he provided shoes and boots for combat soldiers. His family monument was commissioned from Tiffany Studios of New York and required a special train to transport it.  (bio by: Mount Hope NY)
