Abstract:
Herman Friedman was born in Hungary in 1855 and immigrated to the United States as a young man, arriving in Cleveland, Ohio in 1882. He founded Friedman-Blau-Farber in 1883, which was Cleveland's only fully-integrated knitting mill. The Company developed its own dye house, box factory, and knitting machines. It supplied knitted outerwear for men and women. The Company closed in 1939. The collection consists of a scrapbook about the 50th anniversary celebration of the Company in 1933, and photographs of various members of the Friedman family, as well as a scrapbook of condolences that were received by the Friedman family, following Herman's death at age 85 in December, 1935. There also are three compact discs, by Robert Friedman, of the Friedman family history. Robert was a grandson of Herman Friedman.
