Biography of Frank A. Bloom
Adams County, NE Biographies





Frank A. Bloom, conducting a poolroom in Hastings and also dealing in cigars and tobacco, was born in New York city on the 15th of September, 1870, a son of Charles and Fanny Bloom. The father was a speculator and both he and his wife are now deceased.

Frank A. Bloom obtained his education in the public schools of Ottumwa, Iowa, to which city his parents removed during his boyhood days. When he had mastered the branches of learning therein taught he took up the business of cigar manufacturing and in the fall of 1888 came to Hastings. For a year and a half he worked at his trade in a factory and then became foreman, in which position he continued until 1900. Desirous of engaging in business on his own account, he had carefully saved his earnings until his industry and economical expenditures had enabled him to become the possessor of some capital. He then joined John W. Zink and they established the Evans Bloom Cigar Company. After a time Mr. Zink sold his interest to Mr. Evans, while Mr. Bloom continued his active interest in the business until 1910. In that year he purchased his present establishment, although he still remains a stockholder in the cigar factory. The principal brands of cigars made by the firm are the High Altitude in four sizes of ten cent cigars, the Very Best and the Good Cheer. His poolroom is a well appointed establishment liberally patronized. Everything is conducted according to high standards and the success which has come to him is well merited.

In 1900 Mr. Bloom was united in marriage to Miss Mollie E. Butler, and, while they have no children of their own, they are rearing an adopted daughter, Nellie Butler. In religious faith Mr. Bloom and his wife hold to the Lutheran church and he also belongs to the Knights of Pythias and to the Fraternal Order of Eagles. In politics he is a democrat, believing in the efficiency of the party principles as factors in good government, but he does not seek nor desire office and concentrates his efforts upon the development of his business, knowing that close application and unfaltering energy are among the strongest elements of success.
