W B LaParle & Co. listed from 1870-1918.

Although ownership of the monogram is not proven, it is the only fit based on available data in the liquor dealer database.

Arlington Club was an A.M. Hellman & Co., St. Louis, MO. brand. Laparle sold this brand and "Old Grey Rye", "Royal Crown B B N" amd "Royal Crown Rye".

La Parle is listed in directories from 1870 to 1918, first in a series of partnerships. First was Laparle, Funck & Co. (1870-1871), then just Laparle & Funck (1874-1878), then William B Laparle (1879-1880), Laparle & Elich (1881-1884) and back to W B Laparle (1885-1894).
Laparle must have died in 1895 because the busniess becomes "Estate of W B Laparle" in 1895 and 1896. Apparently the name was saleable because the busniess continues as W B LaParle (1897-1908), W B LaParle & Co. (1909-1910) and finally The W B LaParle Co. (1913-1918).

The company was at 12 State (1870-1871), 159 Kinzie (1874-1886), 220-222 Kinzie (1888-1908) and 21 W Kinzie (1909-1918).

Brand names used by this company include: "Arlington Club Pure Rye", "Old Grey Rye", "Royal Crown B B N", and "Royal Crown Rye."
