Notes

"He is a self-made man. Beginning as a grain merchant at Lawn, he gave business impetus to the place. He entered the shoe business, to which some of the Kreiders were turning a gentle hand, he carried it to large commanding proportions - five large factories at present, Annville, Elizabethtown, Middletown, Palmyra and Lebanon. We hope to have a separate write-up of the Kreider shoe business. He was nominated for the State Legislature, but a place opened for his calibre and he went to Congress. The fact that he has been returned again and again without opposition is sufficient comment on the nature of his service. His associates in Congress have placed him on important committees without him so much as lifting a finger to get the appointment. He was recently sent by Congress to visit the battlefields of Europe, from which trip he has just returned. ..." -Francis 6/19/1919
