This is an engraved portrait of Ferdinand Schumacher, a manufacturer from Akron, Ohio, ca. 1875-1900. Schumacher was the first to mill oatmeal in the United States and founded American Oatmeal Company. That company became the General Mills American Oatmeal Company, while still under the ownership of Schumacher. That company was one of several that merged to form the Quaker Oatmeal Company. In addition to his industrial pursuits, Schumacher was active in the temperance movement.
