|Summary Note||Summary: "Philanthropist and investor Bob Gries was minority owner of the Cleveland Browns when Art Modell sold the team to Baltimore. His wife, Sally, started a Cleveland-based investment management company that represented a groundbreaking advance for women in that industry. Love of Cleveland is a lifelong theme for this modern Gries couple, and in his book Bob explores its historic contours. Gries ancestor Simson Thorman arrived in the 1830s from Bavaria and became the city's first Jewish settler. Next, Kaufman Hays modernized Cleveland's clothing industry and saved the city from bankruptcy. In the third generation, Nathan Dauby spearheaded the growth of the May Company into the largest department store in Cleveland, and Rabbi Moses Gries led Temple Tifereth Israel through transformation and growth. Gries' father, Robert Hays Gries, co-founded Suburban Temple and was a founding partner of the Cleveland Browns. Bob discusses the rarity of five generations of a family showing leadership in and commitment to a single place" -- Braun Group website. |
