Dr. N. H. Chapman and Dr. Louis Weiss were industrious business partners, indulging in various commercial disciplines in the towns of Del Norte and Summitville, Colorado in the early 1880s.

Their endeavors included medicine, assaying, chemistry, pharmaceuticals, transportation, books, photography and stationery.  Weiss managed the storefront in Del Norte while Chapman oversaw

operations in Summitville, where he was also the mining camp’s postmaster.  Their intent was to cover as many “necessary” as feasible for recently established towns.

Evidently scientific-minded, they pursued business lines dependent on knowledge and proven fact; a partnership uniquely suited for mining camp  endeavors.
