RUPP, SAMUEL E., is one of the most prominent and enterprising young business men of his township. He is a native of Dauphin county, and was born in Swatara township, May 31, 1866. He is a son of the late Samuel and Fannie (Horst) Rupp. Mr. Rupp was brought up on the farm, and received a few months instruction each year in the township schools, being occupied with farm work during the busy seasons. This continued until he was fifteen years old, when he enjoyed the advantages of a course at the Harrisburg Business College. He finished his educational training at the Lebanon Valley College, from which he was graduated in 1887. He then spent two years in traveling through the Western States, and visiting the Rocky Mountain region. Not finding any locality which afforded him better business opportunities than his own section of the country, he returned to Pennsylvania, and opened a real estate office in the College Block, Harrisburg. In December, 1895, he removed his office to No. 306 Market street, where he is doing a prosperous business in real estate. Mr. Rupp is not married, but has his residence on the old homestead in Swatara township, where he is delightfully situated, it being one of the finest farms in the county. Mr. Rupp's political views are Republican. He has good natural abilities and is trained to the best use of his talents. He has made a promising beginning, of his career, and his future is bright with Hope.
