Harris Frishman, born 1858 in Russia, immigrated to the US in 1894 and operated a retail dry goods store. On August 24, 1927, after being in “very bad health for several years“ and now “confined to his home,“ Mr. Frishman committed suicide while his family was managing the store. After his death, his sons Abraham and Aaron continued operating the business, which was still advertising in 1960.
