HARVEY DRUCKER. One of the well known citizens of Cleveland who has won success in business and prominence in public affairs is Harvey Drucker, public accountant and consulting tax expert, who has been a resident of Cleveland for over twenty years. He received his early educa tion in the public schools of Boston, Massachusetts. Coming to Cleveland in 1900, he attended the Cleveland Law School for a time, and then became a salesman for the H. C. Christy wholesale grocery company, and while thus employed he studied law and accounting in night schools. In 1916 he engaged in business as an expert accountant, and a while later began specializing in tax service, assisting large concerns in making out income and other tax reports, and has developed one of the largest clienteles in the city, his abilities being in constant demand in that special service.
