Kryshak, Anton L. (1860 – 19??)
ANTON L. KRYSHAK, proprietor of the Wausau Cigar & Tobacco Company, manufacturers of fine cigars, is established at No. 310 Third Street, Wausau, Wis., in the Kryshak Building, a handsome, three story brick structure which is a positive testimonial to his industry and business, ability, for he is a strictly self-made man. He was born in Germany, in 1860, and was only eleven years of age when he came to the United States and immediately to Wausau. He attended school here but as soon as the law permitted became a cigar maker and thoroughly learned the trade. In 1891 he started into the business for himself, making his cigars in his own home, and finding a ready market. Through honest business methods and untiring industry he was able to meet competition and prosper. About nine years after entering into the business he was able to erect the substantial building which bears his name and in which he carries on his factory, giving steady employment to twenty-five skilled cigar-makers. He has never been active in political matters, being more interested in promoting his business, but he belongs to several fraternal bodies, including the Elks, the Eagles, the Knights of Columbus, the Catholic Knights of Wisconsin, and the United Commercial Travelers.
