Bio

I was in the wholesale apparel business. I started selling men's hats in 1946. Then I sold men's clothing and sport shirts. In 1967 I represented London Fog rainwear and outerwear. I became a regional vice -president and was responsible for a five state area with twelve salesmen in my region. I was with London Fog for 27 years and retired in 1995.
