Roberta Gratz is the co-owner of Gratz Industries, Inc. and wife of the late Donald Gratz, whose father Frank along with a business partner opened a custom metal fabrication business Treitel/Gratz in New York City in the 1920’s. 

After Donald took over the family business and while delivering a metal furniture piece to one of his customers met Romana Kryzanowska at his customer’s home. Romana had needed a manufacturer for her apparatus as more and more teachers were arriving at her studio, the original Pilates studio, eager to learn the method from her and then needing apparatus to work on at home. Meanwhile, Donald went on a blind date with a young reporter named Roberta Brandes. Roberta began her journalistic career as a copy girl in 1963. She quickly rose up to become a reporter for the New York Post in 1965 where she spent the next 15 years. This interview is part of her story.
