Emmanuel P. Adler became a printer’s apprentice at the age of 13. He was working in the mechanical department of the Ottumwa Courier when he was discovered by the paper’s publisher A.W. Lee. Adler became a reporter for the Courier and was then sent to Davenport as the business manager of the Davenport Times. When Lee died in 1907, Adler took over as president of the Lee Syndicate, now known as Lee Enterprises, and held the position for more than 40 years. Under Adler’s guidance the company grew to include newspapers, radio and television stations.
After the Bank Holiday in 1933 Adler was instrumental in reopening American Commercial and Savings Bank as Davenport Bank and Trust Company. By 1936 the bank had grown to become the second largest bank in Iowa.
The E.P. Adler House is a Colonial revival building on Main Street, just south of Vander Veer Botanical Park. It includes Colonial Revival and Late 19th and Early 20th Century American Movements architecture.
