At just 16, Isaac Sanger left Germany for the United States. His first stop was New Haven, CT, where he worked in his uncle’s clothing store, followed by a stint as a bookkeeper at a New York City clothing manufacturer. From there, Sanger took his industry knowledge to McKinney, TX, where he pooled his merchandise with Eli Baum and opened a dry goods store.

Soon, Isaac’s four brothers joined him in Texas, where they opened stores in Weatherford, Bryan, and then Dallas – earning international renown for their innovative marketing techniques and playing a major role in the city’s commercial development.

The Sanger Brothers building in Dallas is now part of the El Centro campus of Dallas College.
