---Schilling, O. George (25 October 1862 – 19??)
O. GEORGE SCHILLING, vice president and superintendent of the Wausau Novelty Company, at Wausau, Wis., has been associated with this business enterprise since it was founded, eighteen years ago, all this time having been superintendent of the business, and for two years he has been vice president of the company. Mr. Schilling was born in Saxony, Germany, October 25, 1862, and is a son of Frederick and Christina Schilling.
In 1866, when O. George Schilling was four years old, his parents came to America and found a home at Plymouth, in Sheboygan County, Wis., where his father opened a cooper shop. They lived there for nine years and then moved to Menasha, Wis. In the public schools Mr. Schilling secured his education and then served an apprenticeship to the cabinetmaking trade and afterward went into the general mill business, with which he was practically identified all the time prior to coming to Wausau, in December, 1892. Mr. Schilling is regarded as one of the far-sighted business men of the city and in addition to looking after the interests above mentioned, is one of the directors of the Wausau Building, Loan and Investment Company.
Mr. Schilling married Miss Leah Bedell, of Wausau, and they have one daughter, Gladys. He is a member of the Knights of Pythias and the Modern Woodmen.
