History time! You often hear me talk about my grandmother, Edith Flagg, but what you don't hear a lot about is my maternal great-grandfather, Benjamin Platt. He was a badass businessman (growing the largest retail business of its kind), philanthropist and founded the Platt Music Corporation, along with being a founding member of Hillcrest, City of Hope, American Jewish University and was one of the founders and president of Sinai Temple holding reign for 21 years! He was also the President of the Jewish Home for the Aging. Benjamin was born in a small town near Kiev, Russia (now a part of Ukraine). He moved to the US in 1905, when he was 20 years old and started his career as a salesman in New York City, for the Singer Sewing Machine Company. He moved to Los Angeles later that year and started selling pianos door-to-door, thus creating The Platt Music Company. Eventually, the company grew and leased space in large department stores and sold consumer electric products. He went on to buy several buildings on Broadway in downtown Los Angeles. By 1955, Platt Music was the largest retail business of its kind in America. Benjamin was honored at the Ambassador Hotel in 1955, on the anniversary of his 50th year in business. Some of the biggest names in LA and even Mexico attended this event. Benjamin Platt is the father of Herman Platt and the grandfather of my beautiful mother, Cynthia Platt Flagg An absolute legend. I hope you took thorough notes because this will all be on the midterm.
