M. L. Eppstein
ILTON L. EPPSTEIN,
lawyer, banker and
merchant, was born at
St. Joseph, Missouri,
November 30, 1866,
son of Leopold Eppstein,
and his mother, Henrietta
Westheimer Eppstein. The family
later moved to Texas, settling at
Denison, where the elder Eppstein
established the business which is
now known in almost every part of
the State-that of L. Eppstein &
Sons. Milton Eppstein is a trained
lawyer as well as a successful merchant
and banker. However, he
follows the legal profession no
longer, devoting his time entirely to
his Fort Worth business interests
and to his noted hobby - ersey
cows. Speaking of the latter, he
owns one of the finest stock farms f
in the Southwest, where he spends
most of his time after business
hours. Milton Eppstein came to
Fort Worth in January, 1904, moving
here from Denison. Besides
being president of the big wholesale
liquor business on Throckmorton
street, he is also the Kentucky distiller
of the famous brand of Jersey
Cream whiskey. He is a member of
the Elks and other clubs and lodges.
He is a high school and law graduate.
He is unmarried. Besides the
raising of fine Jersey cows, the Eppstein
farm is noted for its blooded Art
hogs. In addition to the flesh and
blood Jersey cows, for which his
stock farm is noted, Mr. Eppstein
is the owner of the famous Jersey
Cream herd of iron cows which
furnished the sacred bovines that ac- (,
companied the members of the Fort
Worth Ad Club to Toronto upon the
occasion of the national convention
of advertising men held in that city
in 1914. He is known everywhere
as a genial companion and good fellow
and has a large host of
friends. 3 I
