8 Martin Fischer was known as "Marty"to most people. Marty pursued the art of drawing when he was a young boy and this developed into his desire to draw pictures to make an animated motion picture. During Marty's high school years he studied and developed the ability to understand this photographic skill to the point of creating his own amateur movie. This was shown at a national art festival and was honored with an award. Marty further pursued this skill as he went into college and was on a trip to purchase movie equipment when his life was suddenly ended in an auto accident. In memory of Marty, his parents funded the Martin Fischer Foundation which annually awards a scholarship to a graduate of Concordia High School in Fort Wayne, In. who wishes to pursue a college education in the Arts. A documentary called "On The Waterways" was produced in memory of Marty as it was one of his goals prior to the accident. It was shown for a number of years over National PBS television stations. During Marty's high school years, he also became interested in the Fischer genealogy and along with his father made a trip to Germany to obtain as much information as possible about his German heritage. This information became the basis for this present genealogy report. Fischer, Martin Paul (I149)

Paul's employer merged into the national firm of Ernst & Ernst and Paul was transferred to their Fort Wayne office to work with their national client, Lincoln National Life Insurance Co. This job would serve him until he was offered a job with Lincoln National Life Insurance to help set up their tax department. Paul stayed with Lincoln for a few years until he decided to venture out on his own as a Venture Capitalist. This preclude a long career of buying and selling companies for himself and others which resulted in a sizeable accumulation of wealth for Paul and his family.

This foundation was folded into the Concordia High School Foundation in Fort Wayne, In. with a yearly scholarship being awarded to a Concordia High School graduate who wished to pursue a college education in the humanities. Fischer, Paul Frederick (I8)
