    Notes 
    • Talented artist and painter--inherited gift from his father, Abraham.

      Owned the Garden Pharmacy in Hollis, Queens, NY from 1926 to 1957

      From Ruth Sheinaus Asimov: "Of the three girls and one boy that Fanny and Abe had, only Louis, my
      father, went to college, although the women married a doctor (Esther), a
      dentist (Rosie) and a lawyer (Lizzie). My father took a pharmacy degree at
      Columbia (they no longer have a college of pharmacy) and a pharm.d. degree at
      some New Jersey college which I don't know. Abe's family knew the Scheiner
      family in Europe, and when they came here, they lived near each other. (My mother,
      Nettie, was a part of the Scheiner clan, 'tho her last name was Pollakoff."

      Louis was known as "Foff" because when his daughter, Ruth, was little, she pronounced the word "father" as "foff.''
