Description
Full Text

Phillip Hoffmann, 512 Ridge road, Wilmette, was born in 1863, in the old Hoffmann homestead, which still stands at 204 Ridge road, only a few blocks from his present home.

Early in life Mr. Hnffmann and his brother, John A., 1922 Wilmette avenue, two years younger, formed a partnership and entered the general merchandise business, later expanding by adding fuel, lumber and building materials. Their 50th anniversary in business was celebrated last January

When only 14 and 12 years of age, the two boys were forced by the death of their father to assume the responsibilities of caring for the family. Their success under adverse circumstances is a tribute to the strength of character and indomitable will of the American pioneer.
