Ruder, Henry (1871 19??)


HENRY RUDER, secretary and treasurer of the George Ruder Brewing Company, of Wausau, Wis., has efficiently served in this connection since 1892, when the company was incorporated, his father having been its founder. He was born in this city, in a house that then stood on the present brewery site, in 1871, and he is a son of George and Louisa Ruder, well known residents of Wausau.  


Henry Ruder was reared in his native city and secured his education in its excellent schools and a business college at Milwaukee, which he attended three years. From boyhood he has been to some extent employed around his father's brewery and thus may be said to have grown up in the business, which, from a small beginning, has been developed into an industry that commands a capital stock of $200,000. In 1892 the business was incorporated with Jacob Gensmann as president; Julius Quade as vice president; and Henry Ruder as secretary and treasurer. The plant is located at Nos. 502-516, inclusive, on Grand Avenue, Wausau.  


Henry Ruder married Miss Alma Kickbush, who was born at Wausau, and they have two children: Paula and Leona. He is widely acquainted with business men all through this section and is prominent in Odd Fellowship, belonging to Lodge No. 215 and Marathon Encampment No. 79.
