MAUSOLEUM OF WILLIAM H. LUDEN - Charles Evans Cemetery, Reading, Berks County, PA
William H. Luden, famous for his Luden's Cough Drops and other candies, made a name for himself in Reading, PA. The business was eventually absorbed as part of Hershey Foods later in the 20th Century. Luden, however, is not buried in this mausoleum. In fact, I do not think any of his family are buried in the mausoleum. Luden moved from Reading to Philadelphia and is buried there. What a waste of a beautiful mausoleum!
