Biographical/Historical Information

The gingerbread mold was owned by the poet, novelist, and playwright, Richard Beer-Hofmann (1866-1945), an "avid collector of art and antiques". Beer-Hofmann passed the mold on to his distant relative, George V(ictor) Wolfe (a son of Beer-Hofmann’s cousin), who in turn gave it to Ed Reckford in 1986.

The academic George Victor Wolfe (Vienna, 1904 – Caldwell, ID, 1990) was a professor of political science at the College of Idaho in Caldwell, Idaho.
