My father, Albert, emigrated to the United States in 1946 [at the age of 21].
He arrived by ship in New York and was received by some distant relatives from the Camhi family.
He then went by train to Atlanta, Georgia to attend Georgia Institute of Technology.
He studied there for two years and then in 1951 moved to Detroit, Michigan where he started a business designing equipment for the automobile industry.
He later refocused on the Steel Industry and has continued his business in that field to the present day.
Albert is now 77 years old and works harder than ever from his offices in Bowling Green, Ohio.
After coming to the United States, Albert helped two of his other brothers emigrate to the United States.
Samuel Calderon arrived in 1958 and Nissim Calderon in 1959.
