Max Factor and family settled in St. Louis after arriving in the US
from Russia and he began his US cosmetic business at the 1904 St. Louis
World's Fair. Many of his siblings and other family members also settled
in St. Louis before moving west. It was a time of great opportunity
in St. Louis during that period with the World Fair initiated quite a
business boom.
