About Adolph Schuman

Adolph Schuman was president of the Lilli Ann apparel company and a longtime Democratic campaign contributor.

Mr. Schuman started his the fashion company in 1934 in two rented rooms with $800 he borrowed. In 1982, Lilli Ann reported retail sales of $40 million.

His purchase of huge quantities of fabrics helped revitalize the war-ravaged French and Italian textile industries in the early 1950's. He was named a Chevalier of the Legion of Honor by France and received the Order of the Legion of Merit from Italy.

A liberal Democrat, Mr. Schuman frequently held big fund-raising dinners and parties at his Nob Hill condominium.

Mayor Dianne Feinstein described him as a special friend of the Kennedys who could always be relied upon to support progressive political leaders everywhere.
