Milton Snavely Hershey (September 13, 1857 – October 13, 1945)

Businessman and philanthropist Milton Hershey founded the Hershey Chocolate Company in 1894. He supplied chocolates for the U.S. troops during WWII. They
were called Ration D Bars rather than Hershey’s Bars. Hershey helped out on 
the family farm as a young boy. When he was in his 20s, he would accompany
his father on business trips. He started his own candy company in 1876, but
it failed within six years. Hershey moved to Denver. CO  and worked with a
confectioner, where he discovered the secret of making caramels…fresh
milk.
