The Harness Maker’s Dream: Nathan Kallison and the Rise of South Texas
Lecture and book signing with Nick Kotz

Description: Nick Kotz will share how his grandfather, Nathan Kallison, escaped Russia in the 1890s and settled in South Texas. His one-room saddlery in San Antonio grew into the largest farm and ranch supply in the Southwest. Through civic involvement, retail success and his own ranching operation, the man and later his sons helped develop modern Texas. Kotz tells the family’s fascinating story in The Harness Maker’s Dream: Nathan Kallison and the Rise of South Texas.
