Biography of Edward Cockrell Hoffman

Statistics show that more than ninety per cent of men are failures in business and investigation brings to light another fact that too many are prone to make constant changes in business instead of concentrating along a single line and developing a thorough mastery of the work undertaken. A notable example of this rule is Edward Cockrell Hoffman, who is now engaged in the line of business in which he started out as a young tradesman, being the secretary, treasurer and manager of the Hoffman-Speed Printing Company of Muskogee. He has been instrumental in building up a substantial business at this point and the results achieved are attributable in large measure to the thoroughness with which he has mastered the trade and the executive ability which he has developed in controlling his interests. Mr. Hoffman was born in Aullville, Missouri, December 29, 1879, and is a son of David Lincoln and Mary Louise (Kincheloe) Hoffman. The father was a contractor and builder, long conducting business of that character. Discover your family's story.
