Edward A. Soleliac    

EDWARD A. SOLELIAC, general manager of the Adelaide Silk Mills in Allentown, controlled by the Phoenix Silk Manufacturing Company, was born in New York City, September 14, 1873. His parents were Louis and Eleanor (Anthony) Soleliac. With his parents he moved to Allentown in August, 1881, and received his early tutelage at the private school of Miss Magruder. Later he attended Muhlenberg Preparatory School and Muhlenberg College. He entered Lehigh University and was graduated from that institution in 1893. After one year in Philadelphia Textile Schools, he entered the employ of the Adelaide Silk Mills as assistant to his father, Louis Soleliac, then general manager of the mills. After his father’s death in 1899, he succeeded to his position. In 1914 he was appointed managing director of the Pennsylvania plants of the Phoenix Silk Manufacturing Company, which includes two mills in this city and the Tilt Silk Mill in Pottsville, Pa.

Mr. Soleliac has been very active in social, civic and charitable affairs in Allentown and vicinity. He was chairman of the executive committee in charge of the recent $120,000 campaign conducted by the Y. M. C. A., and it was largely through his force of character and personality that the goal was reached. He was a former president of the Livingston Club, and was the first president and at the present time a member of the board of governors and chairman of the house committee of the Lehigh Country Club.

He is also identified with the Allentown Lodge of Elks; the Contemporary Club and the Manhattan Club, of New York City, as well as the Rotary Club and the Silk Association of America.

Mr. Soleliac is a director of the Allentown National Bank; secretary of the board of trustees of the First Presbyterian Church, and treasurer of the Allentown Rescue Mission.

He is married to Grace W., daughter of Robert E. Wright, and is the father of one daughter, Eleanor Caroline.
