A.D. Juilliard and Company Men’s Suits — 1963


Yes, it IS the same Juilliard. Augustus D. Juilliard (1836-1919) had accumulated his great wealth as a merchant who distributed textiles. In his later years, as a passionate lover of music, he served as President of the Metropolitan Opera (from 1892 until his death). After his death, the bulk of his vast estate was designated to be used in the advancement of music in the United States. The Juilliard Graduate School was established in 1924 and is one of the top music conservatories in the world. And it all began selling wool, cotton, and silk.
