Martin Leonard 'Bud' Schulman, 88, who expanded his family's photofinishing business nationwide and later became a
management consultant to orthodontists, died of cancer Sept. 27 at his home in Chevy Chase. Mr. Schulman was a native
Washingtonian and a graduate of the old Central High School. He received an associate's degree from what is now Strayer
During World War II, he served in the Army as a supply sergeant in Florida. After his discharge, he worked with his father, who
had started a photo studio in 1917 and took pictures of soldiers during World War I.
The photofinishing firm, known as Hicks CQS and later Crown Photo, merged with other small photo firms and produced
greeting cards for drugstores and developed a national mail-order color-processing business. Mr. Schulman expanded the
company's scope nationwide until he left the firm in the early 1960s.
He then worked for Dental Corp. of America, a Rockville-based orthodontic laboratory that made models and braces for dental
work, for about 20 years until becoming a consultant to orthodontist offices in the Washington area. He retired in 2004.
His wife, Joanne Melba Scheier Schulman, died in 2005.
Survivors include two sons, Steve Schulman of Shady Side and Jon Schulman of Sandy, Utah, and three granddaughters.
