             Biographical note 
             Joseph Emm Seagram was born April 15, 1841 near New Hope in Canada. His parents died while he was young, and he was placed under the care of a local clergyman. Seagram continued his education through a year at Bryant and Stratton Business College in Buffalo, N.Y. After working as a bookkeeper, he was hired on as a manager to help a man named Hespeler run a mill. He was successful, saw the potential for a distillery, and decided to buy out the other partners' shares. Eventually, Joseph Seagram would become a partner at a distillery in Waterloo, Canada in 1869, and he would become the sole owner of the distillery in 1883, calling it Seagram and Sons. Later on, the Bronfmans of Montreal, founders of Distillers Corporation Limited, would absorb Seagrams, and take over the Seagram name.
