Emil Schram and his three sons, 1959

An inquiry came in from someone who had been searching for years for a copy of this photograph of Emil Schram with his three sons. They had seen the photograph in an article titled “Why I told my boys to invest first in life insurance!” published in the Montreal Gazette.

The Library and Archives in Canada located and digitized the image and the response from the client read: “Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. And thank you again. It is just beautiful.”

Emil Schram died in 1987 at 93 years old. Among other roles, he was head of the New York Stock Exchange from 1941 – 1951. Read more about him in the New York Times obituary.

Emil Schram was originally photographed for Northwestern Mutual Life Insurance.
