years of his life in his native country and then, leaving Europe, crossed the Atlantic to the new world. He did
not tarry on the Atlantic coast but made his way at once into the interior of the country and took up his abode
in Toledo, where he continued his education in the parochial and high schools, while later he attended Toledo University
and thus by liberal educational training was well fitted for life's practical and responsible duties. When his
textbooks were put aside he became associated with the real estate business and in this field he has continued
to labor. In 1918 he organized the Gould Realty Company, of which he has since been the president, and he is also
associated with various other companies which have controlled important subdivisions and promoted many notable
real estate transfers. The Gould Realty Company handles only downtown business property and specializes in ninety
nine year leases. being the pioneer real estate firm to specialize in this branch of the business. Mr. Gould is
thoroughly acquainted with the realty market in Toledo and by his progressive and enterprising methods has won
a large clientele that makes his business of most substantial and profitable character.
On the 25th of November, 1912, Mr. Gould was married to Miss Helen B. Murphy and they have become parents of three
daughter: Jane Louise, Katherine Ann and Mary Elizabeth. The parents are members of the First Congregational church
and are much interested in its work. Mr. Gould is a trustee of the Toledo Zoological Society and he gives considerable
thought and attention to all those questions which bear upon the sociologic and economic conditions in the country
today, ever seeking to extend a helping hand where he believes that his aid will be productive of beneficial results.
To this end he is serving as a trustee of the Newsboys Association, of which he was not only one of the organizers
but was its first vice president, and he is always ready to speak an encouraging word or to improve the environment
and surroundings of the youth of the country with the ultimate hope of developing a strong and virile American
