Hello Scott,
I am going to send you some of the information from the 'New Soper Compendium' that Dawn and her late husband, Dr. Earl F. Soper compiled. I'll be just highlighting some of the information. It's a book of about 382 pages. If you see errors, we would appreciate you sending any corrections to us at we are hoping to update the NSC one day and also adding any descendants that are not currently in the book. If you wouldn't mind sharing your information, we would like that too. If we can help further, just let us know. We hope this helps.

He was one of the founders of the Soper Sanitary Kitchen Company.
