Thomas Kilpatrick & Co.
In 1895 Thomas Kilpatrick & Co. was founded. It was an outgrowth of the drygoods firms of A. Cruickshank Company, which had begun as Ross and Cruickshank in 1868, and Tootle & Jackson. These two firms had been absorbed into the Kilpatrick-Koch Dry Goods Company. Thomas Kilpatrick and Company was acquired later by Younker Brothers Stores.
From the home of Howard and Louise Platt, Omaha, Nebraska.
