This is a cabinet card photograph showing Ed Hyer. He joined his brother Charles H. Hyer in the Hyer Brothers Boots and Shoes in Olathe, Kansas. The business blossomed and, by 1900, it had grown from two employees to 15. During World War I, the Hyers made boots for the officers at Fort Leavenworth and at Camp Funston. Later, it was known as the Hyer Boot Company. By the 1960s more than 70 people were busy making boots for a worldwide clientele.
