Elisha Winter

Elisha Winter was born in Brooklyn, New York, October 13, 1849.  At an early age he entered journalism in 1884, starting a publication for the New York retail grocers.

     Mr. Winter was secretary of the first and second national conventions held by the retail merchants in 1886 and 1887 in Washington, and was the first State Secretary in New York of the National Association.  He continued in this capacity until 1891, when he went to Boston and organized the first Food Fair.  From that time on his efforts have been to federate merchantdom, to secure harmonious action among all retail merchants, to obtain better laws, improve bankruptcy laws, oppose trading stamps, and all similar devices that violate the code of commercial ethics.

     Mr. Winter started the international congress that will meet at the World's Fair in 1904, and has probably organized more associations than any other man.

     Mr. Winter was married to Estella Ralph at Brooklyn May 28, 1879, and has one daughter, twenty-one years old.
