    Max Henius His father sold the distillery that Max had hoped to take over and he had fallen in love with Johanne Heiberg Both families disapproved of the relationship and Max Henius decided to immigrate to the US and subsequently send for his fiancée to come and marry him Interestingly a contemporary who would also become a very famous Danish American Jens Jensen would immigrate to the US three years later partly because his prospective partner also did not meet family approval A fellow student from Hannover and Warburg Robert Wahl told Max of the multiple opportunities available in the US and later would partner with Henius in a very successful business Already in 1870 immigrants made up a larger proportion of the city s population 48 percent than any other place in North America Chicago was quickly rebuilding after its massive destruction by fire in 1871 and Danish immigration was beginning to swell Max Henius arrived in Chicago in October of 1881 Although he was a well educated and degreed chemist his first jobs were as a door to door book salesman errand boy for a pharmacy and as a coal trimmer Two years later he was employed by the Northern Pacific Railway to test the waters between Fargo North Dakota and Bozeman Montana but returned to Chicago to marry Johanne on June 4 1883 With his savings he opened a drug store and subsequently formed Wahl Henius Analytical and Consulting Chemists with a lab at the back of the store They established themselves as authorities on yeast culture and brewing Chicago was at this time one of the most rapidly growing cities in the world the Shanghai of the late 19th century Population growth was meteoric fueled by decade after decade of immigration But it was a wide open and divided city and hardly immune to the controversies of its time May 1 1886 saw a massive demonstration by workers well advertised in the immigrant press in favor of the eight hour working day Three days later the conflict culminated in a violent confrontation The 1886 Haymarket Massacre took place in Chicago when an unknown person threw a dynamite bomb at police as they dispersed a public meeting Chicago police fired on workers during a general strike for the eight hour workday killing several demonstrators and resulting in the deaths of several police officers International Workers Day is the commemoration of the Haymarket Massacre Ironically this would become a holiday officially celebrated throughout the Soviet bloc in the next century Henius did become involved in some of the public issues of this time In 1892 a typhoid epidemic broke out in Chicago Sewage was discharged into the Chicago River and subsequently found it way into Lake Michigan where Chicago s water supply was tapped Henius examined milk samples that were watered down and publicly spoke out on his findings The waters of Lake Michigan were mapped bacteriologically so the water cribs were moved farther out in Lake Michigan
