Machlup, Adolf

Hungarian merchant and philanthropist; born at Eisenstadt in 1833; died at Budapest Jan. 1, 1895. He studied at Budapest, and at the Polytechnic School in Vienna, and took part in the revolutionary movement of 1848. In 1867 he and his brother Eduard built at Budapest the first leather-factory in Hungary, and in 1868 the first factory for stearin candles and soap. Both these enterprises did much to advance Hungarian industry and trade. Machlup left large sums to many Jewish as well as non-Jewish societies, including a bequest of 200,000 gulden to found a nonsectarian Home for Convalescents in the city of Budapest.
