    History of Pokorny Real Estate Company
    History of Pokorny Real Estate Company
    The Pokorny relatives were bound together financially for decades after the death of Michael Pokorny through the establishment of a family trust and real estate company. All of Michaelís children participated with the exception of Hannah Pokorny Haas. During that time the law required a husbandís signature for a wife to be involved in such an activity. Hannah was separated from her husband, Alexander Haas, which prevented her participation. Thus alternative arrangements were created for Hannah to benefit from the familyís assets.

    Much of the decision-making and details on the Pokorny properties can be viewed in the Pokorny papers in the Manuscripts Department of Tulane University's Special Collections Division.

    The following article was written at the height of the Roaring Twenties' economic boom and a few months after the 1927 Mississippi River floods, which was the worst natural distaster of the city until Hurricane Katrina. The article appeared in the New Orleans Times-Picayune Sunday Real Estate Section and its author, Herman Seiferth, was a well-known local journalist (he is also included in this genealogy). The optimism of the period is reflected in the tone of the article. However, real estate like all sectors of the economy took a big hit in the Great Depression, which began two years after this article was printed. A decade later the Pokorny descendants would dissolve their family corporation, which had kept them financially tied together for many years.
