Owner Biography

Robert S Fisher

Robert S. Fisher of Keokuk, Iowa, graduated from Colgate University in 1930, the year before he joined Hubinger, a maker of starch, syrup and other corn products. He retired when the company was bought by the H. J. Heinz Company, which turned it into a subsidiary. He retired as chairman and CEO when it was bought out.

An avid pilot, Mr. Fisher logged more than 21,000 flight hours, many of them in World War II on antisubmarine patrol and then as an Air Force captain in Africa, Europe and the Far East. In 1953, he flew a small Aero Commander from Iowa to London, Paris, Rome and back, a notable feat aboard a light aircraft back then.
