Life of Gábor Munk (1865–1955)

He started his career in Großwardein as a shopkeeper: he advertised his wares which ranged from apricot to washing powder in local newspapers. After moving to Budapest, he made his fortune as the sole distributor of Manner Waffles in Hungary, Croatia and Bosnia-Herzegovina. He re-invested his profits in real estate, thus becoming the most well-off member of the family. He was a great philanthropist who gave substantial amounts of money to help the Israelite Community of Pest, and among many other noble causes, he supported the publication of a book on the Munk family genealogy in 1939.
