“The Girl In The Glass Box” sculpted in Italy by Giulio Monteverde based on the original sculpture owned by Francisco Oneto. This sculpture once graced the home of Herman C G Luyties, but due to the weight of the statue it had to be moved. Mr Luyties is buried at the foot on his beloved statue and the rest of his family is buried in his wives family plot.


Luyties, Herman C. G.

The following data is extracted from Centennial History of Missouri.

Herman C. G. Luyties, president of the Sanitol Chemical Laboratory Company of St. Louis, is a representative of a family that has long been connected with the pharmaceutical interests of the city and in the conduct of his present business he has made steady progress, winning an enviable position among the representatives of commercial interests in Missouri. He was born in St. Louis, July 26, 1871, and is a son of Dr. Herman C. G. and Louise (Rein) Luyties, who are mentioned elsewhere in this work. He is indebted to the public school system of St. Louis for the early educational opportunities which he enjoyed and later he attended the St. Louis College of Pharmacy. His earliest knowledge of and training in business came to him through the Luyties Homeopathic Pharmacy Company, a business which was established in 1853 by his father, Dr. Luyties having been one of the earliest representatives of the school of homeopathy in the middle west, and in connection with his practice he established a pharmacy in order to supply homeopathic remedies to the trade.
