About Henrietta Lehnhardt

On the 5th of July, 1883, Mr. Lehnhardt was united in marriage to Miss Hattie Marcus, a native of New York city, who came to California with her parents when she was still an infant. Her father engaged in general merchandising in San Francisco in the early '70s and continued there until his death, building up a large and important enterprise. Mr. and Mrs. Lehnhardt became the parents of two children: Edna Anita, who married E. J. Cowing, of Oakland, by whom she has two children; and Emil, attending school.

Mr. Lehnhardt continued in active business until his death, which occurred January 26, 1911, after which his wife assumed charge. Under her able management the concern has continued its phenomenal growth, for she has proven a woman of executive ability and keen business insight and has held the concern to its enviable position among the leading enterprises of its kind on the coast. She and her husband had planned a new factory and after his death she carried out the plans, completing the fine modern factory at Twenty-fourth and Grove streets.
