ADOLPH RICHTER
Adolph Richter, who is one of the leading real estate men of Salt Lake City, is in every sense of the term a self made man. He was born in Germany, August 10, 1859, and was educated in the schools of Stettin. Graduating from the high school there, he found himself being influenced by a desire to seek a new home in America Determining on this step, he reached New York in 1878 and sought and secured employment for a while in the Fulton Street market.

About a year later he came west and joined a surveying party which the government was sending to Alaska. This early exploration and surveying trip was a most valuable and interesting experience for Mr. Richter, and when it was completed he returned to the States, remaining a while in San Francisco and later locating in the Black Hills of South Dakota. Here he was employed for another year and went from the Black Hills to Colorado, working at Leadville, Aspen and other mining camps, acquiring a knowledge of mining men and mining interests that has proved invaluable to him.

He came to Salt Lake in 1891, and was a pioneer of the slogan that Salt Lake is a city of opportunities. Froth the day he opened a real estate office in Salt Lake until today he has been one of the most successful men in his line in the country. He devotes his entire time and attention to the real estate business, and his name is perhaps better known than many other prominent citizens of the town. He is proud of the city of Salt Lake and is always willing to lend his moral and financial aid to anything and everything that will accrue to its best interests.

While not a club man in any sense of the word, and although he does not bother with politics, he is prominent in the Commercial Club and is one of the prime movers in the Salt Lake Real Estate Association.

He was married to Miss Lucy A. Deakin in May, 1893, and, while he has no children, he is very domestic in his tastes and habits and spends much of his time at his comfortable home at 87 L Street.
