Levi Strauss became famous during the CA Gold Rush. Strauss, born in Germany in 1829, came to America in 1847 to escape religious discrimination (family was Jewish) & to work for his brothers' dry goods business in NYC. In 1853, he went west & started his own clothing co. which began making heavy-duty work pants in the 1870s. (First called “waist overalls,” they are now known as blue jeans.) As his business thrived, Strauss supported many religious & social causes.
