A. H. BREYMAN PASSES AWAY

PIONEER MERCHANT A VICTIM OF NEURALGIA

Death Relieves Him, After Suffering Six Months – Identified With Portland’s Growth for Years.

Arthur H. Breyman, pioneer merchant and founder of the Breyman Leather Company, died yesterday morning at 4 o’clock, at his residence on Portland Heights. He had been ill for nearly six months, afflicted with a complication of neuralgia of the face, and while everything possible was done for him, little hope of recovery had been held out for some time past. He died surrounded by his family.
Mr. Breyman had been actively engaged in business in Oregon since 1859 and had played an active part in the advancement of many interests. He was born in Germany 68 years ago and came to America in 1856, arriving in Oregon the following year. With his brother-in-law, he first entered into merchandise business at Muddy, the firm name being Breyman & Bartels. In 1885 he organized the Baldwin Sheep & Land Company, in Crook County, and was also engaged in placer mining in Southern Oregon. In 1890 he came to Portland and engaged in the wholesale leather business, the firm growing to be one of the largest in the Northwest.

During the administration of Mayor Rowe, Mr. Breyman was a member of the Board of Public Works, in which position he made a record as an efficient, watchful and conscientious public official. He leaves a widow and five children, Otto Breyman, Mrs. Bertha Ash, Misses Edna and Flora Breyman and Teddy Breyman. Mrs. A. Bartels, a sister, lives here and another sister resides in Hamburg. August Breyman of Mt. Tabor, is a brother. Another brother, Werner Breyman, resides at Salem.
