Manny Rosenthal, a Sprightly 70,
Dubbed 'Mr. Downtown Detroiter'
The title "Mr. Downtown De-
troiter" was bestowed by a group
of 100 business and civic leaders
on Emanuel M. (Manny) Rosen-
thal, president of Mohawk Liqueur
Corp., upon his 70th birthday Mon-
Louis C. Miriani, former mayor,
was chairman of the celebration
held in the firm's banquet room.
Born on High Street near Rus-
sell, Rosenthal began his present
career at age 15, delivering mer-
chandise throughout the downtown
area in a one-cylinder 1906 Brush
runabout from the original plant
at Russell and Gratiot.

Not only has he spent his entire
business career in the downtown
area, he still lives downtown at
the Sheraton Cadillac in the heart
of the central business district.

and is cochairman of the finance
committee for the building cam-
