An American Family History

Milton Leo Tuller

 

Milton Leo (Mendel Lieb) Tuller was born August 25, 1914 in Brooklyn. His parents were Manes Tuller and Bella Levine. When he was a child he liked to roam around on the beach and find money and other valuables the tourists would lose.

His brother, Morton said that one reason he turned against organized religion was that during his Bar Mitzvah a woman made fun of him because of the poor quality of his clothes. Morton was not able to make his Bar Mitzvah because the family was too poor at the time. 

After Milton graduation from high school he spent two years (1934 and 1935) in the Civilian Conservation Corps. He went from Fort Shader to Idaho to Ojai, California. He always remembered the two years in the Conservation Corp as the happiest of his life.

He married Frances Fay Morrison on June 28, 1937 in Chicago.

He was a supervisor in the post office.

Milton died on August 15, 1999 at age 84 in Los Angeles, California of congestive heart failure. He is buried with his wife Frances at Mount Sinai Cemetery in the Hollywood Hills.

 

Chicago, Illinois saw a major expansion in industry in the 1920s and prohibition led to the Gangster Era from 1919 until 1933. It was the nation's railroad center.
