Biography of R. H. Thompson


Thompson, R. H., Buffalo, wholesale paper dealer, comprising book papers, cover papers, writing papers, linen, ledger and bond papers, cardboards and envelopes and all specialties in this line, was born in Buffalo, N. Y. He learned the trade of printer and bookbinder in the establishment of Sage Sons & Co., lithographers. He engaged in the paper business on the 29th of September, 1886, first on Hanover street and later, in January, 1887, moving to No. 48 Exchange street. The business grew rapidly until 1893, when he was compelled because of lack of space to move to larger quarters at 225 and 227 Washington street. The business has since grown stedily until he has been compelled to purchase a building of his own, comprising 184, 186, 188 and 190 Washington street, which he occupied in the spring of 1898.
