Biography of Adolph Geiger


Geiger, Adolph, Buffalo, a member of the firm of C. Kurtzmann & Co., piano manufacturers, is a native of Germany, and came to this country in 1869, settling in Buffalo, where he has since resided. He is a practical piano maker. Christian Kurtzmann, a native of Germany, established a piano manufactory in Buffalo in 1848 and ably conducted it until his death in 1886, when Louis S. Kurtzmann, Mr. Geiger, and Alexander Cordes formed a copartnership under the firm name of C. Kurtzmann & Co., which has since remained unchanged, Mrs. Fredericka Cordes succeeding to her husband's interest upon his death in 1893. This is the only piano manufactory in Erie county and one of the oldest and best known in the United States. From 125 to 150 men are employed. To Mr. Geiger is due much of the firm's success; he has charge of the factory, and is endowed with musical talent of a high order.
