In Reply:--Overlooking the New York Public Library and adjacent Bryant Park through the large picture window of his New York office for 43 yr, my father, Richard von Foregger, corresponded with manufacturers, surgeons, anesthesiologists, nurse anesthetists, hospital superintendents, government officials throughout the world, and with Foregger salesmen on the road, Foregger dealers and representatives, equipment suppliers, and all the vendors necessary to keep a business thriving.

Yes, I left many out of the biography; I could not mention everyone. Sorry!
