The details (from wikipedia)


Federico "Fritz" Schlumpf (Omegna, Italy, February, 1906; April 18, 1992) was a Swiss Industrialist, who spent most of his life in Alsace (France) and collector of automobiles. He is best known for the Schlumpf collection housed at the Musée National de l'Automobile de Mulhouse.

Schlumpf was the son of the textile industrialist, Carl Schlumpf and his wife Jeanne Becker. The textile industrialist Hans Schlumpf was his brother. The Schlumpf family moved to Mulhouse, France (then in Germany) in 1908. Hans and Fritz Schlumpf lived in Mulhouse at their country house, Malmerspach, until they escaped and became Swiss exiles in 1977.

After World War II Fritz and Hans Schlumpf gathered an enormous collection of classic automobiles, including several hundred Bugattis (many of them in pieces or unrestored, but many were also completed cars). To fund this hobby they encumbered their enterprise to such an extent that by 1977 it became insolvent. Until this time the automobile collection was unknown to the public, but the excesses were revealed in 1977 during a strike by the former Schlumpf textile workers.
