Bernard Richter (1921-1988) was an entrepreneur.  He inherited control of his father's peach distribution business.  He joined with his wife's relative, Leon Levine, in establishing Family Dollar Stores.  He was obviously very successful.  

Bernard Richter married Sherry Levine, a native of Hamlet, N.C., in 1950.  She was a most accomplished person.  Very active in civic affairs, an excellent public speaker, she was an early broadcasting personality, both on radio and television.  She was a lover of nature, which might explain the setting of the house they purchased in 1975.  Anecdotal evidence suggests it was designed by A. G. Odell, Jr., Charlotte's preeminent modernist, and constructed in the mid-1950s.
