Born in St. Louis September 11, 1931 to Dr. Herman and Viola (Liepman) Meyer, Bud graduated from Soldan High School and the University of Missouri. After spending two years as a Lieutenant in Fort Sill, Oklahoma teaching artillery, he began his investment career at Semple, Jacobs Co. but followed his mentor, Mel Taylor, to Stifel, Nicolaus & Co. in 1962 and remained there until his retirement in 2015. Over the course of his long employment he worked on the trading desks; on the floor of the Midwest Stock Exchange for Semple, Jacobs; as an assistant branch manager for Stifel; ran Stifel’s put and call desk; testified in front of the SEC in 1969 about industry practices; and found immense fulfillment establishing and maintaining decades-long relationships with retail clients. He took great pride in his many years of service on the board of New Mt. Sinai Cemetery, and in the Medic Investment Group he founded with his father in 1959. Always a sports fan, he was proud to be a shareholder of the old St. Louis Browns as a child and to have shot a hole-in-one at 80. He was known as a talented woodworker and enjoyed winters in Arizona where he was always ready to play a game of golf.
