Herman F. Lang

Herman F. Lang was born in Cincinnati, Ohio, July 2, 1858.  He spent his youth there, and received his education in the public schools.  In 1876, when eighteen year old, he came out to Leavenworth, Kas., where he engaged in business.  In 1886 he removed to Kansas City, and established the saddlery business of H. F. Lang & Co.  In 1894 he became secretary and treasurer of the Morrill-Keitz Furnishing Goods Company, which does business not only in Kansas City, but tributary territory.
