Krueger, Carl G. (15 January 1873 – 19??)
CARL G. KRUEGER, whose important business interests are mainly centered at Wausau, Wis., where he is assistant cashier of the First National Bank, is a native son of Marathon County. He was born January 15, 1873, on a farm in the town of Stettin, Marathon County, Wis., and is the son of A. W. and Wilhelmina Krueger.
A. W. and Wilhelmina Krueger were both born in Germany and for a number of years after coming to Wisconsin, the father carried on farming in Marathon County, when failing health caused him to change his mode of life. He then came to Wausau and for some years afterward successfully conducted a general store in this city, but now lives retired.
Carl G. Krueger was reared at Wausau and here attended the public and parochial schools, and helping his father in his business. At the age of eighteen he went to Milwaukee where he entered the employ of Wm. Steinmeyer Co., wholesale and retail grocers. But Mr. Krueger had an ambition; he was looking for things beyond. After leaving school at the age of fourteen he did not feel that he had had sufficient learning, but employed his evenings attending the public night school during the winter season. After a year's satisfactory service for Steinmeyer & Company, he entered the Spencerian Business College at Milwaukee, completing the course in the year 1893. In March, 1894, he entered the service of the First National Bank of Wausau, as a junior clerk and collector, and he has been advanced step by step, according to bank custom, until he became assistant cashier.
He is prominently identified with other business interests in Wausau and is president of the Northern Milling Company, which is operating with a capital stock of $100,000. Mr. Krueger is well known all over the county and is recognized as an able and trustworthy business man. Because of his great faith in the future possibilities of Wausau and Marathon county he has taken an active interest in the development of its resources, especially has he been interested in getting the young men to become a success and help to this community. For the past fifteen years he has been a director and treasurer of the Wausau Y. M. C. A. and since its organization has been a member of the Wausau Board of Industrial Education.
In early manhood Mr. Krueger was married to Miss Frances Hooker, of West Salem, Wis., who was born at New Orleans, La. They have four children; Gretchen, Rhoda, Richard and William.
