Mr. Schmidlapp’s wife, Emelie, and young daughter, Emma,
were killed in a railroad accident. In 1907, his daughter, Charlotte,
was killed in an automobile accident as the pair toured France.
He poignantly recounted, “It is strange that in both these tragedies
I should have been the first to be struck, and not have been able
to save those who were much dearer to me than life itself.” Mr.
Schmidlapp’s grief found solace in philanthropy. A newspaper
described his community commitment this way: “Mr. Schmidlapp,
though crushed by the heavy blows that fell upon him, took a
renewed grasp on affairs, and misfortune served only to bring out
the real nobility of his nature. He grew more deeply interested in
philanthropic and public enterprises generally.”
