Founded as Ernst Hertzberg & Sons Monastery Hill Bindery in homage to Hertzberg's boyhood home. "But that was quite a mouthful," says his great-granddaughter Rhoda Hertzberg Clark, who has been president since 1974. So it was shortened to Monastery Hill. Among the dozen or more binderies of the day, his alone survives, at 1751 W. Belmont Ave., where the bindery's success over 128 years stands as a monument to shrewd adaptation to changing times. (Chicago Tribune, July 28, 1996). The Monastery Hill Bindery employed all of Ernst Hertzberg's family, plus a few sons-in-law. As all family businesses go, there had to be some conflict. After Ernst passed away his son, Edward, took over. Edward was a harsh leader and strict disciplinarian. To make a point to his son Lawrence, he hit him so hard on the back of the neck that it knocked him to the floor. Several of the brothers knew it was time to find other ways to work rather than stay in this growing family business. (University of Iowa, Special Collections Department).Lew R. Sarett, poet, lecturer and teacher was the author of five volumes of poetry includingMany Many Moons (1920); The Box of God (1922);Slow Smoke (1925); Wings Against the Moon (1931);andThe Collected Poems of Lew Sarett (1941), whichincluded an introduction by poetCarl Sandburg, Sarett's friend of many years. His papers are held at Northwestern University, where he taught for many years. He served as an adviser on Indian affairs to the Department of the Interior, and lived among the Chippewa Indians of the Lake Superior region, and was adopted by them and given the nameLone Caribou.When Sarett was not teaching, he served as a part-time ranger in National Parks in Montana and Wyoming and as a wilderness guide in northern Minnesota and Canada.As a horticulturist, he produced six new varieties of dahlia, each of which won many awards.
