Jules Heumann (1924-2017)
A graduate of Lowell High School, J went on to the University of California at Berkeley and served in the Navy on an LST in the South Pacific from 1944-1946. After World War II, J and his brother Syl went to work at the family business, Metropolitan ("Metro") Furniture Company, founded by their maternal grandfather in 1905. Upon the death of their father in 1949, J and Syl became co-presidents of Metro, engineering its evolution from a floundering firm to a highly successful manufacturer of residential and contract furniture. J was chief designer at Metro, winning numerous awards for his furniture and patenting several innovations. He retired in 1985.
