Weinfeld, Charles (4 April 1872 – 19??)
CHARLES WEINFELD, general agent for northern Wisconsin of the Northwestern Mutual Life Insurance Company of Milwaukee, Wis., with offices in the Weinfeld Building on Third Street, Wausau, is interested also in the land business and is president of the Wausau Mississippi Timber Company. He was born at Sherwood, Wis., April 4, 1872.
After graduating from the high school at Appleton, Wis., Mr. Weinfeld came to Wausau and started a small news stand, but afterward entered the clothing business, which he subsequently sold when he became interested in land and this interest he has continued as above mentioned. In 1897 he entered first into the life insurance business. In 1911 he was appointed general agent for the Northwestern Mutual Life Insurance Company, of Milwaukee, Wis., with which he has mainly been identified since embarking in this line of business. For four years — 1909, 1910, 1911 and 1912 — he led in the United States with the Northwestern Mutual Life, being ahead of every other company, both in total amount of business and also in number of policies. In 1912 he wrote 240 separate policies aggregating a vast amount, averaging $4,400 to each policy. Mr. Weinfeld has invested largely at Wausau and in 1897 erected the handsome pressed brick Weinfeld Building, located at Nos. 307-309 Third Street. He is an active citizen where public interests are concerned and is numbered with the representative men here.
On June 14, 1909, Mr. Weinfeld was married to Miss Johanna Stem, of Chicago, Ill. He has long been prominent in the Elks and for three consecutive terms served as exalted ruler of Wausau Lodge, No. 248, B. P. O. E.
