AUTOGRAPHED by the recently deceased Author. Profusely illustrated with lots of photographs, correspondence, ledgers, newspaper clippings, receipts, etc., some dating back to the 1850's. 227 pages hard cover.
Published by Henry J. Hauschild, April, 1990; printed by the Whitley Company, Austin, Texas, first edition. By the author of "A Musical Chronicle - From the Historical Scrapbooks by Henry J Hauschild".
"Accurately believing that history comprises more than military conflicts and politics, Hauschild has set out to provide an account of Texas's economic development by examining the lives of Henry Runge, his son-in-law and nephew Julius Runge, and their descendants, a family that played an active role in the Texas economy. H. Runge and Co. was one of the first banks in Texas and the oldest private unincorporated Texas bank at the time of its failure in 1932. The Runges were active in promoting railroad development in Texas. While living at Indianola, Henry Runge served as U.S. consul for Hamburg, Germany. Runge, in Karnes County, is named after Henry Runge. Hauschild obtained much of his information from privately held collections. Through photographs, purchase, receipts, newspaper clippings, and letters he has provided a vivid glimpse into the Texas past...."
