A Count Account (2)


This article from 1909 tells of Alexander Graf von Faber-Castell’s progress in Canada, which followed his visit to America.


Excerpts of interest:

  • “On his return east the Count hopes to see Toronto, Montreal, Ottawa and other Canadian centres.”
  • “The Count, who is also one of the largest real estate owners in Bavaria, commands a staff of the most competent officials, employees and skilled laborers.”
  • “It may be of interest to know that in the year 1898 the Count married the grandchild of Baron Lothar von Faber…and for this reason the Count affixed the name ‘Castell’ to ‘Faber'”.
