George Mallon, prominent Detroit
merchandiser, on his 80th birthday,
Long known here for his sales-
manship and as a representative of
large national clothing firms, Mal-
lon remains active. He is so highly
regarded among his buyers here
that the J. L. Hudson Co.'s clothing
department last year honored him
with a dinner on his 79th birthday.
He is an active member of Con-
gregation Shaarey Zedek and its
Men's Club and is a regular atten-
dant at Sabbath and holiday serv-
ices. He has been associated with
the Bnai Brith for 50 years, first

when the late Dr, Leo M. Franklin
was its president. He is now affi-
liated with the Bnai Brith Down-
town Lodge.
He also is an active member of
the Business Men's Club of the
Jewish Center.
A native of Germany, Mallon
came to New York in 1900. He
then worked in a factory and for
six months was copy boy for the
now defunct German Herald. He
went to Chicago in 1912, came to
Detroit in 1912, and has been in
the clothing merchandising busi-
ness ever since.
He was married on Oct. 29, 1912,
to Mary Pragg. His wife passed
away on Sept. 12, 1962—a month
before their planned golden wed-
ding celebration.
Mallon has two sons, Dr. Jerome
J. Mallon of Flint and Milford Mal-
lon of Oak Park; five grandchildren
and one great-grandchild.

Jerome. A brother, Rabbi Max
