I am seeking biographical information on George Leonard Herter, author and founder of Herter's of Minnesota (sellers of hunting and fishing equipment).

I am told that George Leonard Herter is the son of Christian Herter (1895-1966) who was
governor of Mass. and Secretary of State.
Can anyone confirm this?

I have located some biographical information on Christian Herter which indicates that he was the son of Albert Herter (1871-1950--a muralist and portrait painter, whose wife Adele was also an artist) and the grandson of
Christian Herter (a German immigrant who helped form the New York City interior design firm of Herter Brothers).

I am interested in George Leonard Herter because I have enjoyed reading the many books that he authored. He had a strongly opinionated view of life that is refreshing because he makes no effort to be politically correct. I have attempted without success to find a biographical study on him, and being an amateur genealogist thought that I might gain some understanding of him by digging out some of his family history. He mentions Christian Herter, sect'y of state, in several of his books (one book being dedicated to CH).

The state capitol of Wisconsin has some impressive works of Albert Herter. His son, Christian, is represented in one of his murals.
