Morris M. Horn, president of the Horn & Blum Manufacturing Company, was born near Vienna, Austria, on November 27, 1883. His father, Heiman N. Horn, was also born in Austria, and after his marriage to Anna Sender he came to America and located in Chicago, Ill., where he is now largely engaged in the manufacture of ladies' clothing, under the firm name of H. N. Horn. They are the parents of four children, two sons and two daughters, as follows: Morris M., our subject; Peter is associated with his father in Chicago; Ray married David Solomon, of Chicago, and Rose, single.

Morris M. came to Chicago with his parents and there attended the public schools. At the age of fifteen he entered the employ of his father and became thoroughly efficient as a cutter and draftsman. In 1905 he went into the manufacturing business for himself, first locating at Neilsville, Wis., where he remained until 1911, successfully engaged in making overalls and jackets, then, associated with A. Blum, he came to Eau Claire and established the firm of Horn & Blum, manufacturing overalls, packets and shirts, which they have since continued to carry on successfully with Mr. Horn president and Mr. Blum vice president and secretary. Mr. Horn is an energetic, wide awake business man, and stands well in the commercial circles of Eau Claire. In 1903 he married Miss Freda Meyers, of Chicago. He is an independent Republican and a member of Brai Birith.
