Founder of Curtis Publishing Co., which published The Saturday Evening Post, Ladies' Home Journal and The Philadelphia Inquirer. Curtis came to Philadelphia for 1876 Centennial and remained. Lived near here at Lyndon, his home from 1891-1933. Only Curtis Hall (1903), the home's music room, remains. The grounds, designed by landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted, form Curtis Arboretum, later acquired by Cheltenham Township for public use.
