One of the most attractive establishments of Bartlesville is that conducted by Mr. and Mrs. A. E. Myers, who have here carried on both a wholesale and retail florist business during the past four years. Mr. Myers was born in Iowa on the 13th of September, 1879, and when a little lad of five years accompanied his parents on their removal to Indiana, in which state he obtained his education.

Experience that well qualified him for his present line of business came to him during six years’ employment on the Coles Rose Farm at Kokomo, Indiana. In 1912, when a young man of thirty-three years, he came to Bartlesville, Oklahoma, and assumed the duties of manager of what is now the Steinhauser Florist & Nursery Company, then owned by George B. Keeler. He served in that capacity until 1917. In the latter year he embarked in the florist business on his own account, establishing his present place at Eleventh and Shawnee streets, where he owns three acres of land devoted largely to the propagation of flowers of all varieties. He sells to both the wholesale and retail trade and has enjoyed a constantly growing business, having already twice enlarged his facilities and expecting to do so again in the near future. He now has about fourteen thousand feet under glass.

On the 22d of August, 1902, Mr. Myers was joined in wedlock to Miss Mary Lambdin of Indiana, and they have a fine home near the greenhouse. Mr. Myers is a Scottish Rite Mason and also be-longs to the Woodmen and to the Red Men. His social characteristics are such as have won him wide popularity, while as a business man he has gained recognition and prosperity through enterprising, progressive and honorable methods.
