Seligman Brothers--Pioneer Jewish entrepreneurs of Santa Fe and the New Mexico Territory 


Arthur (Seligman) Scott



Please see my article describing the lives of the three original Seligman Brothers, German Jewish immigrants to Santa Fe. Sigmund immigrated  to Santa Fe in 1849 and entered a wholesale-retail mercantile business a year before New Mexico even became a U. S. Territory and while it was still under US Military rule. The business consisted of buying goods in the east and sending them to Santa Fe by wagon to be sold in Santa Fe. The Seligman Brothers store lasted well over a hundred years on the Santa Fe Plaza.
