1920 · The First Fannie May
The first Fannie May shop was opened by H. Teller Archibald. It became so popular that after fifteen years Fannie May had opened 48 stores in the Midwest. During World War II, the ingredients for all of Fannie May's recipes were hard to come by. However, they chose to not change their recipes, while other competitors did. Fannie May's vision was to create handmade, delectable chocolates, without ever compromising the taste of the candy.
English: occupational name for a worker in metal, from Middle English smith (Old English smið, probably a derivative of smītan ‘to strike, hammer’). Metalworking was one of the earliest occupations for which specialist skills were required, and its importance ensured that this term and its equivalents were perhaps the most widespread of all occupational surnames in Europe. Medieval smiths were important not only in making horseshoes, plowshares, and other domestic articles, but above all for their skill in forging swords, other weapons, and armor. This is the most frequent of all American surnames; it has also absorbed, by assimilation and translation, cognates and equivalents from many other languages (for forms, see Hanks and Hodges 1988 ).
