Abstract

Biographical essay about August Schell (1828-1891) from Immigrant Entrepreneurship: German-American Business Biographies (Volume 2: The Emergence of an Industrial Nation, 1840-1893). August Schell immigrated to the United States as a young man in the aftermath of the failed revolutions of 1848. After first settling in Cincinnati, Schell became one of the founding fathers of New Ulm, Minnesota, where he founded his eponymous brewery in 1860. Today, the brewery is the second-oldest family-owned brewery in the United States.
