Charles Pfizer
Charles Pfizer (March 22, 1824 in Ludwigsburgmarker as Karl Pfizer ÔÇô October 19, 1906) was a Germanmarker chemist who immigrated to the United Statesmarker in the early 1840s and founded the Pfizer Inc. pharmaceutical company in 1849 as Charles Pfizer & Co. He remained at its head until 1900, when the company was incorporated and Charles Pfizer, Jr. became its first president. When Charles Jr. retired, his brother Emil succeeded him in his post.

He made frequent trips to Europe, and met his wife Anna Hausch, whom he married in 1859, in his hometown of Ludwigsburg. They had five children.

He died at his summer home, Lindgate, in Newport, Rhode Islandmarker; his year-round home was in Brooklynmarker. His death came a few weeks after a fall down stairs in which he broke an arm and was otherwise badly injured. Two daughters, Alice, Baroness Bachofen von Echt and Mrs. Frederick Duncan of Viennamarker, were with him when he died.
