  • Notes 
    • After graduating from Hill’s Business College in Waco he went to work as a bookkeeper at the Schumacher Grocery Company in Houston. The year after he was married and upon the advice of his doctor, he and Ellie moved to a ranch near Uvalde. After his health improved they moved to Coupland where he managed the Hellmuth-von Rosenberg Store. In 1916 he made the final move to Waco where spent most of his life in the cotton business. He was associated with the A. N. Denton Cotton Co. for many years. He was assistant county auditor in Waco in the early 1940s. He also at various times had the Chevrolet-Paige Agency and distributed Quaker State Motor Oil, but he returned to the cotton business. After Ellie, his wife, died, he married Florence Gibbons of Corpus Christi.

      Hermann became a Mason at Galveston in 1915, joined Scotish Rite the same year and was a charter member of Waco Consistory of Scottish Rite. He was commander of Waco Commandery No. 10, Knights Templar in 1937, and was potentate of Karem Shrine Temple in 1939. He was a member of Waco Lodge No. 92, A. F. and A. M., and received his 50-year awards from the Grand Lodge of Texas, the Grand Chapter and the Consistory in 1965. He was captain of the Shrine Patrol drill team in the 1920s and headed many Shrine committees over the years. He joined Waco Rotary Club in 1926 and for more than 50 years was a member of First Presbyterian Chruch, where he was a deacon and elder. [1]
