Biography of Isidor Friedman

The mercantile establishment of The Friedman Company might well be termed the “Marshall Field” of Racine. Not only is it the largest store of its kind in the city but it institutes and adopts the most progressive methods and in all of its undertakings displays the spirit of initiative and progress. The business was started in Racine about nine years ago and has been developed to one of extensive proportions and success in large measure crowns the efforts of the members of this firm. Isidor Friedman, who is head of The Friedman Company, was born in Germany in 1854 and when nine years of age made the voyage across the Atlantic to the United States, and was reared in New York City. When a young man he went to St. Louis, Missouri, where he entered the business world. Having attained success, he retired from active business in 1906, but being a man of extraordinary ambition, he was not satisfied to remain away from business activities, and in the year 1907 he came to Racine, where he embarked in the ladies ready-to-wear business, opening a store in the Masonic Temple building. Mr. Friedman and his store soon became very popular with the Racine public. The high class of merchandise carried, coupled with his straightforward methods, made it a successful enterprise from the beginning and the business grew with rapid strides. In order to meet the demands of the trade, Mr. Friedman secured the building adjoining his store on the north and connected it with his store. The business continued to prosper and was growing so rapidly that in 1912 Mr....

Biography of Simon J. Friedman

One of the pioneer merchants and enterprising, progressive business men of Hailey, Simon J. Friedman, was born in Germany, April 5, 1846, a son of Itzig and Bertha (Usher) Friedman, also natives of that country. The father is still living, at the age of ninety years. Our subject was educated in Germany, gained his mercantile experience in his father’s store, and in 1869, when twenty-three years of age, came to the United States, for he had heard of the superior advantages and facilities afforded young men in the new world, and resolved to win success here if possible. He first took up his residence in Salt Lake City, Utah, and accepted a position as salesman in the store of Fred Auerbach & Brothers, with whom he remained for eleven and a half years, gaining a thorough knowledge of merchandising and of the methods of business as practiced in America. He was a most trusted and faithful employee and had the entire confidence of the house with which he was connected. From Salt Lake City Mr. Friedman went to southern Utah, where he opened a store on his own account. In the spring of 1881, learning of the great silver and gold discoveries in the Wood River country of Idaho, he was among the first to reach this section. The town of Hailey had just been laid out and a few tents raised. Mr. Fried-man put up a tent twenty by forty feet and there in began the sale of dry goods, clothing and boots and shoes. This was the small beginning of what has become one of the leading...

Baker City, Baker County, Oregon Robert Alan Friedman, 53, of Baker City passed away tragically in an auto accident while pursuing his dream to build a nation-wide cabinet and wood products manufacturing company on Friday morning, January 21st, 2005. Memorial services were held at 10 a.m. on Wednesday, January 26, 2005 at Gray’s West & Company Pioneer Chapel. Rev. Robert C. Irwin officiated. Friends were invited to join the family for a reception at Gray’s after the service. Two years ago Robert moved his family to Baker City and established Blue Mountain Workshops, Inc. He worked enthusiastically at building the business with his wife, Valerie A. Friedman, son and daughter-in-law, and nine production employees. Robert always had a desire to better himself and the people that surround him. He was central to the success of a variety of companies throughout his long and varied career as a scientist, engineer, salesman, and entrepreneur. However, most importantly he will be remembered as a devoted husband and father. His enduring commitment, tireless love and support, and patient guidance will always be treasured. His three sons and wife will always try to live up to his good name, and do him proud in every possible way. Robert taught those that listened, life is too short to not follow our dreams, explore our interests, and succeed in all possible ways. He is survived by his wife, Valerie Friedman of Baker City; sons: Jeff Friedman and his wife Erin of Baker City, eldest Stephen Friedman of Baker City, and youngest Michael Friedman of Los Angeles, Calif.; brother Jeff Friedman of Walnut Creek, Calif.; sisters: Marla...
