    --------------------------Picture #4-ELMER F. EBERTS--------------------------

    Hardware merchant and president of the Peoples’ Trust Company, is the proprietor of Drissel and Eberts Store, Nos. 21—23 East Third Street, South Side. He was born at Moorestown, Pa., December 9, 1865, a son of Charles and Esther (Fehnel) Eberts. He received his education in the public schools. After serving in the capacity of clerk in various business establishments, Mr. Eberts became bookkeeper for the C.P. Hoffman Company, and later for the South Bethlehem National Bank. For a period of twenty-one years Mr. Eberts has been successfully engaged in the hardware business, Mr. Drissel being deceased since 1910. He was largely instrumental in the organization of the Peoples’ Trust Company in 1915, the institution opening its doors for business on January 3, 1916. Under the careful guidance of Mr. Eberts, both as President and Director, the bank has become one of the leading institutions of its kind in the city. Mr. Eberts is a member of the Elks, Knights of Pythias, Northampton Club, Chamber of Commerce. He is a director of the Bingen Brick Company and the Hiawatha Hunting and Fishing Club. On May 26, 1892, he married Anna J. Drissel, daughter of John and Matilda (Banks) Drissel.

    ---------------------------Bethlehem, Pennsylvania--------------------------------

    Bethlehem, Pennsylvania was founded in 1741 as a utopian religious community by the Moravians, a central European pietist sect. In its early years, Bethlehem was one of the most technologically advanced and most egalitarian places in North America. An imperfect utopia, however, the community held slaves, was built on land appropriated from native people, and abandoned its egalitarian experiment after one generation.

    At the turn of the twentieth-century, Bethlehem became one of the iconic steel towns of industrial America. Home to the Bethlehem Steel corporation, the city produced the steel for a century of skyscrapers, bridges and battleships. Immigrants from many nations came to work at the Steel and built the vibrant, tight-knit ethnic neighborhoods of the South Side. After the Second World War, and unionization of the plant, Bethlehem became a model of industrial working-class prosperity.

    At the turn of the twenty-first century, Bethlehem endured the familiar fate of deindustrialization. Over fifteen years, thousands lost their jobs. The former Bethlehem Steel site was the largest urban brownfield in America. Poverty rates are high on the South Side of Bethlehem today and our community suffers from many of the social problems that accompany poverty in the United States.

    Bethlehem is engaged today in the dynamic process of reinventing itself as a post-industrial city. Development of the Steel site has included the opening of an arts center, public television station and casino, and other urban renewal projects are under way. SSI contributes to the process of urban reinvention by fostering the study of our most pressing challenges and facilitating democratic deliberation and action.
