http://vintagerecycling.blogspot.com/2013/08/doehla-greeting-cards-inc.html Harry Doehla Born in the 1900s In spite of becoming crippled from rheumatic illness and wheelchair bound by age 18, he built a greeting card empire as means to support both himself and his parents and ended up a millionaire by age 32.
1921~ after trying a variety of avenues to make a living, including painting Christmas cards~ a task made very laborious by his crippled hands~ Harry decided to make a living through greeting cards again, this time though,selling cards, not painting them. Harry's parents mortgaged their home to pay for the consignment of 12,000 boxes of greeting cards for direct sale through mail order to representatives and religious and fraternal organizations for fund raising. Success~credited to Harry's tenacity~ he and the Doehla family managed to sell them ALL! He sold mostly Christmas cards until 1930s where he began to sell everyday cards like you see here.
