Names and Places 

Today, Karg Brothers is the name of a popular local party band. Once upon a time Karg Brothers was the largest tannery in Johnstown, and one of the largest employers.

Today, Littauer is associated almost exclusively with the local hospital, but the money for Gloversville's Nathan Littauer Hospital and existing Littauer Foundation came from the glove and leather industry. The Littauer Brothers Tannery in Johnstown and Littauer Brothers Glove Factory in Gloversville were major employers and financially successful businesses.

Today, famous brand names found in the worldwide glove industry started in Johnstown and Gloversville. Names such as Grandoe, Elmer Little, Aris and Daniel Hays are still available on the market.
