William Telling: The Man and his Mansion : A South Euclid "rags to riches" story

Will, by age 10, was selling strawberries door to door and by age 13 delivering milk from his family's farm. Will got his first paying job in 1886 at age 17; he was operating a derrick in Bill Rolfe's bluestone sandstone quarry. Since this was a skilled job, he got top dollar: $1.50 a day.
