Miles A. Seed

We regret to announce the death of Mr. M. A. Seed at his home in Pelham Heights, N. Y., December 4th, 1913.

It was while he was an operator in a St. Louis studio that Mr. Seed made his first experiments with dry plates in the basement of his home at Woodland, near St. Louis, Mo. The M. A. Seed Dry Plate Company was incorporated in 1883, the factory being built adjoining Mr. Seed's Woodland home.

The Seed business was acquired by the Eastman Company in 1902, Mr. Seed continuing with the business for several years before retiring and taking up his residence in Pelham Heights, where he surrounded himself with the flowers which were his hobby and which had been so much a part of his life in the St. Louis suburban home.

During his entire business life as well as since his retirement Mr. Seed was consistently active in church and charity work and it was from a cold, contracted on a visit to his Bible Class in the army barracks at Fort Slocum, that his fatal illness developed.Those who knew Mr. Seed and his business methods most intimately have only words of praise for his strong personal character and business integrity.
