  • Name Paul K. Halstead 
    Born 29 Sep 1917  Frankfurt, Germany Find all individuals with events at this location 
    Gender Male 
    Biography My father has always been in the supermarket business. As a young man, he worked for Weingarten's (in Texas), and in 54 began his own business, Paul K. Halstead Assoc. This was and is a supermarket and now hypermarket and shopping center consulting business. It has been very successful.

    For many years, my mother worked together with my Dad, as the vice-president and corporate secretary/treasurer of the business. Both my parents are/were very organized and efficient, and excelled at business.

    My brother, Roy, bought the business from my Dad in 1974. He has continued to be very successful, and is well known in the food retail world.

    My grandparents were exceptionally kind, generous and warm people. My grandmother was famous for her hostessing and fabulous
    meals that she cooked up. I grew up just 10 min. away from them and spent many weekends, holidays, etc. at their home.

    My mother carried on the great hostessing tradition and was really very gifted in this area. She was a charming, elegant and classy woman.

    Holocaust Paul and his parents sailed to New York in `36, they stayed here only a few days, as they were only on a visitor's visa.

    In order to obtain an immigration visa, they all had to leave the country, and thus went to Bermuda for 3 days, obtained an immigration visa from the consulate there, (my grandfather apparently had connections in the Bermuda consulate), and then could legally return to the U.S. as immigrants.

    This whole thing was due to the quotas and other American bureaucratic demands of FDR, who as you know, was not very sympathetic to the plight of Jews.  [1
