Biographical History   Daniel Meyer (1824-1911), Bavarian immigrant and San Francisco pioneer, established the Bank of Daniel Meyer with his brothers Jonas, Moritz, and Mathias in 1857. Meyer was a noted philanthropist. He married Clara Newhouse in 1852, and the couple had no chidren. Upon his death his fortune was distributed to charity and among his siblings, nieces, and nephews. The bank was kept up by his brothers for a period after his death, but eventually dissolved. similar items
