Rev. Theodore B. Meyer, pastor of St. Mary’s church at Racine, has done effective work among the Catholic families of this locality since October, 1896, and his labors have been most effective in advancing the growth of the parish. He is a native son of Racine County, his birth having occurred in Caledonia, February 13, 1853. The family name, however, indicates his German lineage. His grandfather was a native of Kaltenborn, Germany, where he engaged in farming and mining, his death resulting from a mine accident. He married a Miss Jungmann and their large family included Peter Meyer, who was
Along the line of steady progression that marks the wise utilization of the varied opportunities which are presented for the attainment of success, Carl F. G. Meyer has reached the presidency of the Meyer Brothers Drug Company, although he started out in the business world in a very humble position. He was born in St. Louis, Missouri, March 7, 1880, and here his entire life has been passed. He was a student in Smith Academy and afterward attended the University of Michigan at Ann Arbor, while subsequently he went abroad and entered the University of Paris. Mr. Meyer initiated his
Otto P. Meyer, first vice president of the Meyer Brothers Drug Company of St. Louis, in which city he has spent his entire life, was born February 28, 1870, a son of Christian F. G. Meyer, of whom extended mention is made elsewhere in this work. He was educated in the public schools of St. Louis and in the University of Michigan, from which he received his Ph. C. degree in the class of 1890. Returning to St. Louis, he then entered the business which had been established by his father and was conducted under the name of the Meyer
To those familiar with the history of Christian Frederick Gottlieb Meyer it would seem trite to say that he arose from an obscure position to rank among the prominent merchants of the country, but is only just to say in a history that will descend to future generations that he left a record which any man might be proud to possess. Beginning at the very bottom round of the business ladder, he steadily climbed upward until his record is today a valuable asset in contemporaneous history. He was the founder of the Meyer Brothers Drug Company, the most important wholesale
Carl Frederick Meyer, whose connection with the business interest of St. Louis is that of president of the St. Louis Cooperage Company, started out in the business world in connection with the concern of which he is now the head. He was born June 11, 1880, in the city which is still his home, his parents being George Frederick and Catherine Elizabeth (Plant) Meyer. Both were born in St. Louis and the latter was a daughter of Samuel Plant, one of the most prominent flour millers of the city and a representative of one of the oldest and best known
JOSEPH MEYER, manager and president of the Billings Mercantile Company at Billings, has been a resident of this city since 1886, and his reputation stands high in commercial circles for sound integrity and honorable business methods. He is a native of south Indiana, born March 6, 1852, and is a son of Joseph and Barbara (Boehm) Meyer, both natives of Germany. The father emigrated from that country to America in 1845, and made a location in Troy, Indiana, but resided one year in New Orleans, La., previous to that. He is still living and is engaged in the manufacture of

Richard Meyer. When he was twenty years of age Richard Meyer came to Kansas with his parents and since then, for thirty-six years, has been a resident of Riley County. He was born at Freeport, Illinois, March 3, 1860, and was reared and received his education in that locality. Farming, stock raising and stock feeding have given him abundance of opportunity to work out his destiny, and the work has not only been congenial but on the whole profitable. Mr. Meyer probably ranks as one of the chief stock feeders in Riley County. The spirit of progressiveness has kept him
Charles H. Meyer was a German, and settled in Tucson in 1854. From 1875 he served several times as City Recorder. His court was unique; every man, when first brought before him for any misdemeanor, he would treat leniently, sometimes giving him a lecture, but for the second offense, he usually imposed a heavy fine, and in addition, would send the offender to the chain gang. If the prisoner demurred to the sentence, the judge would generally double the time on the chain gang, saying: “Veil, I gifs you thirty days more on the chain gang for contempt of de
