Olson, Olaf M (10 April 1877 19??)

 

OLAF M. OLSON,* a prosperous business man of Wausau, Wis., proprietor of the Fashion Ladies' and Gentlemen's Tailoring establishment, situated at No. 309 Jackson Street, has been a resident of this city for twenty three years. He was born at Steven's Point, Wis., April 10, 1887, and is a son of Nels and Hansine Olson.

 

Olaf M. Olson was young when his parents came to Wausau, where his father opened his tailor shop, and after his school days were over he became an apprentice under his father and worked for him for two years, afterward for seven years being with W. H. Nablo. To perfect himself in all branches he then went to Chicago, Ill., where he took a course in a cutting school, afterward spending four months in an establishment at Dayton, O. After returning to Wausau he embarked in the tailoring business in partnership with A. C. Koppa and four months later bought his partner's interest. As his trade-mark indicates, Mr. Olson conducts an up-to-date establishment guaranteeing his work, employing seven high-grade tailors and meeting with the public approval that his work justifies him in expecting.  

 

In 1909 Mr. Olson was married to Miss Ida Schultz, a daughter of Peter Schultz, of Wausau and they have one child, Wilma. Mr. Olson is identified with the following fraternal organizations: The Beavers, the Yeomen and the National Fraternal League.
