VICTOR KLECKER, a member of the firm of Pfeifer & Klecker, dealers in meats and manufacturers of home made meat products, at Wausau, with retail store at No. 412 Scott Street and slaughter house at the end of Grand Avenue, has been in the meat business here for twenty years. He was born in Austria. August 23, 1865, and came to America and to Wisconsin when aged sixteen years, and almost directly to Wausau.  


Mr. Klecker learned the butcher business in all its details and afterward, for ten years, worked in butcher shops and then went into business for himself, almost immediately forming a partnership with Charles Pfeifer which has continued since. The firm owns the building at No. 412 Scott Street and also the brick building on the same street now occupied by Carl Merklein in the same business. This firm has a reputation for business integrity that places it among the representative ones of the city.  


Mr. Klecker married Miss Emma Schulze, who was born at Wausau and is a daughter of Ernest Schulze, who was an early settler here.
