My Grandfather Mr. Samuel Briskin who started Revere Camera Co. and Wollensak Recorders and Opticals...Was a self made man..He was born in Kiev Russia...and came to the United States in the early 1900's...with my grandmother Bessie.

They settled in a small suburb of Chicago...Aurora, Joliet area and then movedto Chicago where he owned a Radiator Company by the name of Excel Radiator Co. He was a very proud and wonderful man...He was great to his family and was a giving man to anyone who was in the need...He was the leadingPhilandrolphist in Chicago until he died in 1961...Giving to all groups of people. He loved his business as well as loved all of the people who he employed in chicago.
