Harvey B. Bohner    

HARVEY B. BOHNER, of the furniture firm of Heifrich & Bohner, is the son of Rev. Benjamin and Catherine (Kistler) Bohner, and was born at Harrisburg, Pa., January 10, 1871. After being graduated from the public schools of Bethlehem, Pa., in 1888, he was entered as a student in the American Business College in Allentown, from which institution he was graduated in 1890. He then entered the employ of the F. Hersh Hardware Company as a bookkeeper for several years, after which he became head bookkeeper for the C. A. Dorney Furniture Company. In 1901 he associated himself with M. A. Heifrich in the manufacture and sale of furniture at 734 Hamilton Street, where, under the name of Heifrich & Bohner, the firm conducts a large retail trade. Early in 1916 he purchased his partner's interest and continues in the business alone, although still holding the original firm name. Besides being a progressive business man, Mr. Bohner is actively interested in the civic, social and religious life of the community and is one of the leading spirits of the Chamber of Commerce. It was through his forceful and dynamic energy and force of character as chairman of the campaign committee that this civic body was materially strengthened and reorganized during 1916. In charity work he is among the leaders. He is president of the board of trustees of Salem Evangelical Church; trustee of the Public Library; treasurer of the Associated Charities, and. a charter member of Jordan Lodge, No. 678, F. and A. M. On December 1, 1893, he married Salome, daughter of Samuel and Cecilia Roth, of Allentown.
