Edmund Krumbholz was a hotel man who ran the Ruisseaumont in Lake Placid in 1900, and the Wawbeek Hotel on Upper Saranac Lake in 1914.

From an unidentified clipping in a scrapbook kept by Alfred L. Donaldson, marked "News –- Aug. 1914 — titled "When Wawbeek Hotel Was The Sweeney Carry House; Former President and Governor, Grover Cleveland, and Other Noted Men Stopped There—O. A. Covill Clinched Title to It for C. F. Norton."

The construction of these fine camps and the class of patronage that the [Sweeney] Carry house enjoyed induced Krumholtz and Smith to put up the present [1914] Wawbeek Hotel. C. Edmund Krumholtz was the moving spirit and Smith withdrew two or three years later."

Death of Former President of the Adirondack Hotelmen's Association--Well Known in Resort Circles Throughout United States

T. Edmund Krumbholz, one of the best known hotelmen in resort circles in the United States, died on Wednesday, May 30 at the Kirkwood Hotel, Camden, S. C. Mr. Krumbholz had been a sufferer from an affection [sic: affliction] of the heart for some time and his death was not unexpected. Mr. Krumbholz had been engaged in the hotel business for nearly two score of years and was regarded by visitors at pleasure and restful resorts as one of the most efficient men in his business.

Thirty-five years ago [c. 1888] Mr. Krumbholz built the Wawbeek Hotel at Sweeney Carry, on Upper Saranac Lake, which he conducted for several years. He then constructed the Ruisseaumont  hotel and cottages overlooking Lake Placid, which were a favored stopping place. Mr. Krumbholz next took over the management of the Sagamore Hotel on Lake George, which he operated until it was destroyed by fire. Twenty years ago Mr. Krumbholz built the Kirkwood Hotel at Camden, S. C., one of the largest winter hotels in the South, and had been its managing director since. Among other hotels that Mr. Krumbholz managed during his career were the Eastman Hotel at Hot Springs, Ark., the Buckwood Inn at Shawnee on the Delaware, and the Rockwood at Kennebunkport, Me. Mr. Krumbholz was one of the first Presidents of the Adirondack Hotelmen's Association. He was a thorough believer in the healthful properties of the Adirondack region and for many years was active in promoting everything conducive to its development and growth.

Mr. Krumbholz is survived by his wife, who was Miss Elizabeth Walters of Albany before marriage; one son, Walter Krumbholz of San Francisco, Ca., and a daughter, Miss Klara Krumbholz. The funeral took place on Thursday morning of last week at Camden and the remains were brought to Albany for interment.
