Carl G. Fisher Life

Carl Graham Fisher (January 12, 1874--1939) was an American entrepreneur.

Despite extreme immunization, he became involved in auto racing.

He was a tireless entrepreneur and promoter of the automobile industry and highway construction as well as real estate development in Florida.

He is widely regarded as a genius in the late 19th century, despite family financial challenges and a disability, he opened a modest bicycle shop with a brother.

He began racing bicycles, as well as many other aspects of the burgeoning American automobile industry.

Carl Fisher and his companion James A. Allison registered an interest in producing acetylene headlights in 1904, a precursor to electric models that were not available until about ten years ago.

Early life

Carl Fisher was born in Greensburg, Indiana, nine years after the American Civil War ended, Albert H. and Ida Graham Fisher's son died. Apparently suffering from alcoholism, a condition that would also plague Carl later in life, his father left the family when Fisher was a child. Carl was unable to pay attention in school as uncorrected astigmatism can cause headaches or eye strain, as well as blurry vision at any distances. He left school when he was twelve years old to help his family.

Fisher has worked at several companies over the past five years. He worked in a supermarket and a bookstore, later selling newspapers, books, cigarettes, candy, and other items on trains leaving Indianapolis, a major railroad hub not far from Greensburg. With his two brothers, he opened a bicycle repair shop in 1891. As a successful entrepreneur, he extended his company and became involved in bicycle racing and then automobile racing. He was frequently wounded on the dirt and gravel roads during his numerous promotional appearances, making him one of the early adopters of vehicle safety technologies. A highly publicized stunt involved a bicycle being stolen from the roof of Indianapolis' tallest building, sparking a confrontation with the police.

Fisher married Jane Watts, a 15-year-old teen, in 1909, despite having a fiancée and being officially engaged. When Jane became his new wife at 15, he was 35. For a breach of promise, Fisher's previous fiancée sued him. In the meantime, he and his new wife Jane went on a business trip for their honeymoon. The couple had one child in 1921, who died after one month of pyloric stenosis. In 1926, the couple were divorced.
