Arizona Biographies





LEO GOLDSCHMIDT, president of the Eagle Milling Company, Tucson, and director of the Consolidated National Bank, was born in Hamburg, Germany, September 16, 1852. He was educated there in the public schools and came to the United States when seventeen years of age, went immediately to New Mexico and for a number of years lived in Santa Fe. He came to Arizona in 1877 and has since been a resident of Tucson. There he was first in the employ of L. Zeckendorf & Co., then became established in the furniture business, in which he continued for several years, and in 1887 he sold out and purchased an interest in the flour mill in Tucson then owned by E. N. Fish. One year later he bought out the entire interest of Mr. Fish and the business was incorporated under the present firm name, The Eagle Milling Company, which, from a very small beginning has developed into the largest mill of its kind in Arizona. The mill imports grain from both east and west, but uses as much of the Arizona product as is obtainable. Not only does the mill manufacture flour, but it does also a large business in feed and grain. The management is noted for the fairness and liberality with which it treats its employees, and the payroll is large, adding considerably to the prosperity of Tucson. Alfred J. Goldschmidt is associated with his brother in the business and is vice president of the corporation, of which they own most of the stock. Monte M. Mansfeld is secretary. Leo Goldschmidt is active in civic, political, social and fraternal circles. He is a member of the Masons and B. P. O. E.
