When Henry Bloch returned to Kansas City, Mo., after World War II, he teamed up with his older brother Leon and they did bookkeeping and other services for small businesses.
Leon decided to return to law school, forcing Henry to find a replacement. He placed an ad in the newspaper.
Henry says his mother answered the ad and told him that he should hire his younger brother. Richard decided to join the business even though Henry said he couldn't afford him.
By 1955, the brothers decided to stop doing tax returns because they were too busy with other business services.
