In 1896, S.T. Blackmer moved to Fowlerville -- the family coming from Milan, Michigan -- and opened a men's clothing store. Following is an early picture of him. In my upcoming biography of G.L. Adams, editor and publisher of The Fowlerville Review from 1874-1929, I've shown a picture of Mate Blackmer as a young girl. I'd show it here but the book is very soon to be available so I'd like to keep a few surprises for then.
