CARL ALBERT STEIN, who is Northern Ohio manager for the Ely & Walker Dry Goods Company of St. Louis, Missouri, maintains his executive headquarters in his native City of Cleveland, where his offices are in the Columbus Building.

In the old Stein homestead, at the junction of the present Woodland Avenue, Fifty fifth Street and Kinsman Road, a locality that became later known as Rock's Corners, Carl A. Stein was born October 14, 1875, and from that time to the present Cleveland has continued to be his home. He is a son of the late Sigmund and Josephine (Statemeyer) Stein, who at the time of their death were old and honored citizens of Cleveland. Sigmund Stein was born in Germany, and became a resident of Cleveland, Ohio, in 1848, his wife, who was a native of Switzerland, having arrived in this city a few years later and their marriage having here been solemnized. Sigmund Stein was for many tears a successful representative of the real estate business in Cleveland, and he was one of the substantial, well known and highly honored citizens of the Ohio metropolis at the time of his death, in 1906. His widow passed away in 1908.

Carl A. Stein attended the public schools until he was fifteen years of age, and then found employment in a local factory. A few years later he entered the employ of the old established dry goods house of Root & McBride, and with this Cleveland concern he continued his alliance twenty years. He learned all details of the wholesale dry goods business and gradually won advancement until he became one of the most successful and popular traveling salesmen for this old and reliable house. In November, 1917, Mr. Stein assumed the position of manager of the Cleveland office of the Ely & Walker Dry Goods Company of St. Louis, and he now has executive charge of that concern's business in Northern Ohio, besides personally acting as salesman for his house in the larger cities of his assigned jurisdiction, including Akron and Toledo. Mr. Stein is a member of the board of directors of the Colonial Savings & Loan Company of Lakewood, and is vice president of the First National Bank of Rocky River, he having been one of the organizers of this institution. He maintains his home in the attractive Village of Rocky River, where he has given nine years of effective service as a member of the Municipal Council and four years as a member of the Board of Education. Of his secure status in popular confidence and esteem in his home village further assurance is given in the statement that he is now (1923) serving his sixth consecutive year as mayor. He is one of the liberal and progressive citizens of Rocky River, and is an active member of its Chamber of Commerce. His York Rite Masonic affiliations are with Dover Lodge, Ancient Free and Accepted Masons; Cunningham Chapter, Royal Arch Masons; Holyrood Commandery, Knights Templar; while in Lake Erie Consistory of the Valley of Cleveland he has received the thirty second degree of the Scottish Rite, besides being a Noble of Al Koran Temple of the Mystic Shrine.

Mr. Stein married Miss Eva M. Mastic, who was born in Rockport Township, Cuyahoga County, and who is a daughter of Frank and Hannah Mastic. Mr. and Mrs. Stein have two sons, Sigmund F. and Carl M. The elder son is a member of the class of '24 in the University of Ohio.
