From the time my brother Meyer was in his late teens all the way to his early twenties, his only desire was to be was an actor. We were living on Ogden Avenue at that time and there was a huge mirror built into the living room wall that went all the way from the floor to the ceiling.
Meyer bought a makeup kit and every day he stood in front of that big mirror trying out a different kind of makeup and practicing lines. One of my vivid childhood memories is that I never knew what my brother would look like, because he tried so many different faces. When he thought he had mastered makeup and acting, he went from studio to studio asking to show them what he could do, but he never got a part. After a while he realized that it wasn’t so easy to put an act together and he gave up on it. He did get into show business, though, but in a different way. He also played the cornet, and before going into sales full time, he got a job playing with John Phillips Souza’s band for a short time. That didn’t last more than a year or so. He had finally gotten the urge to be a professional performer out of his blood and became a salesman. Like most of my brothers, Meyer had a gift of gab and it served him well when he connected with the Sessions Clock Company.
