Poisson, Ludger, merchant, was born in Gentilly, Province of Quebec, Canada, August 29, 1868, a son of Nere Poisson, a prominent citizen and wholesale dealer in grain and hay. Mr. Poisson gained his preparatory education in the schools of his native parish and later spent two years in the College of the Brothers of Ste. Croix, at Three Rivers, Canada. Shortly after completing his course (1885) he came to New Bedford and began work as a clerk for his brother, Joseph Poisson, who is elsewhere mentioned in this work. He continued in the capacity of clerk until 1890, when he formed a copartnership with his brother, Gideon Poisson, to engage in a general dry goods and clothing business, under the firm name of G. & L. Poisson. Although they started their business on a small scale, they have in the eight years of their management attained a wonderful growth and are now conducting two stores, one on Purchase street in the North end and the other on Water street in the South end. Mr. Poisson is a member of the B. P. O. E., St. John the Baptist Society, the A. O. U. W., and the Dartmouth Club. He is unmarried.
