July 27, 1923
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

Adolph Nachman, 63 years old, owner of a large speciality store in Montgomery, Ala., and a familiar figure to New York merchants for some years, died of heart attack in his room in the Hotel Collingwood, 45 W. 30th Street.

Mr. Nachman has been buying in New York for forty years, usually making about four trips a year. He arrived there from the south with his wife shortly after 10 o’clock yesterday morning.

Just before she descended, Mrs. Nachman said, to send a telegram to the family in Montgmmery about their safe arrival, her husband apparently was in excellent spirits and had been making plans for an interesting stay in New York. A few minutes later Mrs. Nachman found her husband lying on the couch. Realizing what she knew must be the trouble, she called the house physician. He pronounced Mr. Nachman dead.

Mrs. Nachman, with the body, returned on a midnight train for Montgomery.
