"Pop" Ernest Doelter was an entrepreneur and restaurateur at the turn of the last century. At a critical period in Monterey history, he came along and turned Abalone into an American delicacy - discovering its many uses and creating an entire industry around the food. He subsequently opened his "Abalone and Seafood Restaurant" and enlisted Jo Mora to create his menus. (Grandeau & Shorts Other Collectibles 1a).
