Biography of Howard G. Fisher


Fisher, Howard G., Newstead, p. o. Akron, is a son of George W. and Addie (Wright) Fisher, who formerly lived in Pembroke, Genesee county, N. Y., where Mr. Fisher was a dealer in Portland cement and has for many years been a contractor and maker of Portland cement sidewalks. Since 1884 they have been residents of Akron. Howard G. obtained his education at the Pembroke public schools and at Bryant & Stratton's Business College, Buffalo. After finishing his education he became clerk in the cigar factory of Arthur Stapleton at Akron and a little later manager of the business. This continued about seven years, at the end of which time (1893) he formed a copartnership with Henry L. Steiner, under the firm name of Steiner & Fisher, and they succeeded to the business of which Mr. Fisher had been manager. After one year Mr. Fisher purchased the interest of his partner and has since continued alone; the business has been prosperous in a marked degree, some of his leading brands of cigars having a wide sale. In 1891 he married Mary, daughter of John Heatherly, and they had four children: Ada, Roland, George M. and Homer. Mr. Fisher is a member of Akron Lodge of Odd Fellows and also an active member of the Akron Fire Department.
