Herbert R. Gottfried was the son of Anton and Regina Gottfried; brother of Henry A. Gottfried. He was with the family firm, A. Gottfried & Co., in Erie, Pennsylvania. Fox gives the date 1929, probably based on the date of the patent. The patent was filed on December 17, 1927, however, pushing the date back, assuming that he had at least two years of experience working with pipes prior to filing the patent, he may have started in 1925 or earlier.
