Benjamin Hamberger

Benjamin Hamberger appears to have never been a full time resident of Leadville. Ben did attend the organizational banquet for the Rocky Mountain Lodge of the B’nai B’rith on November 9, 1879. [1] Hamberger was likely a traveling salesman and the only other references that can be found indicate that from 1879 to 1905 he would make an annual visit to Leadville for business and preferred to stay at the Vendome Hotel. [2] No records for Ben Hamberger can be found in Leadville after 1905. [3]
