Christian’s great-grandfather was a famous surgeon after whom Cincinnati’s General Hospital was named. He married the Fleischmann yeast empire heiress Betty Fleischmann cementing the already established Holmes name as one of wealth and status. He often took pride in his family’s lineage.

Joseph Fuisz once told The Dropout, “her father had a real sense of entitlement in terms of the traditional importance of his family, that it sort of eroded over the years. The seeds of Elizabeth’s grandiose fantasy for her business connect to this paradise lost family mythology.”
