(3) Individual, Ind, Dr F H Russ III. 
(4) Ind, FHR III: FHR II studied the furrier trade under his father's firm in 
Glasgow.  It is uncertain why he decided to emigrate to the west but did so in 
1901.  He arrived in New YOurk City with the intention of going on either to 
Toronto or what is now Tulsa Oklahoma.  However he never made it to either of 
those cities.  He went to work as a furrier in the city. He met [his wife] who 
resided in Brooklyn but was from Cornwall and they married in about 1907. 
(5) Ind, FHR III: FHR II and then his wife both contracted TB.  Saranac Lake NY 
was widely known as a tubercular treatment center.  There were many facilities, 
or 'fresh air camps', located there with many doctors specialising in the 
treatment of TB.  Frank Russ II moved with his wife to this area to take 
advantage of the treatment facilities.  Frank II opened up a furrier business 
in Saranac Lake.  Located about 12 miles from Lake Placid NY, both communities 
were considered 'resort' towns and many rich and famous persons vacationed there 
and owned magnificent second residences in the towns.  Frank II's furrier 
business was quite successful, shipping his products from Saranac all over the 
US.  His clientele included such luminaries as John Jacob Astor and Ernest 
Hemingway.  However in about 1934 the depression literally ruined the business 
and he ceased the business in the mid 30's.
