VERY NICE PREFACE BY ALBERTS. HEINZ IS A TERRIBLY INTERESTING CHARACTER. GREAT MAN. IN 1898 HE BROUGHT BACK A 14 FOOT ALLIGATOR FROM FLORIDA AND MADE A HOME FOR IT ON TOP OF A PLANT SO HIS WORKERS COULD ENJOY. Henry J. Heinz (1844-1919) went bankrupt due to an overabundance of one very pungent herb, but he came roaring back with his "57 Varieties" of food products and eventually built his new company into a multi-billion dollar corporation. Henry J. Heinz was born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania on October 11, 1844. As a child, he worked in the basement of his Pittsburgh home, helping his father grind spices for his mother's pickles. Everybody in town loved the pickles, and after they were canned, young Henry would take them around to buyers. He became particularly adept at grinding the horseradish, and his later fortune rose and fell with this powerful herb. To make a living, he worked in his father's brick-manufacturing firm, eventually becoming a partner in the business. The call of pickles and other prepared foods was too great, and Heinz left brick making to return to grated horse-radish, one of his mother's most popular products. Heinz packed the horseradish in clear glass bottles to reveal it's purity. This was the first of many brilliant ideas that would eventually lead to his success. He built a model factory complex along the Allegheny River in Pennsylvania and transformed a 19th century garden into a multi-billion dollar global food service business. 1776 BOOKSTORE, WHERE HISTORY LIVES.
