---Stolze, George (17 June 1882 -19??)

 

GEORGE STOLZE, proprietor of the Northern Machine Works, at No. 630 Washington street, Wausau, Wis., and manufacturer of the Little Cut-off machine, is one of the successful young business men of his native city, for he was born here June 17, 1882. He is a son of Gustave and Marie Stolze, and is a brother of Paul F. Stolze, who is publisher of the Deutche Pioneer.  

 

George Stolze was reared at Wausau and after attending both the public and German schools, spent four years at the bookbinding and printing trade, under the supervision of his father. His talents, however, lay in another direction and when permitted to follow his own inclinations he entered upon an apprenticeship to the machinist trade and served under D. J. Murray, in the Wausau machine shops. In 1906 he embarked in business for himself and not only is an inventor but a thorough all-round mechanic, and does his own blacksmithing and patternmaking. He manufactures his own patent device, the Little Giant, which is a machine for cutting off pipes, shafting, etc.; he also does all kinds of repairing and makes special machinery of all designs, having his shops equipped with two lathes, one with a 26-inch swing and the other with a 13-inch swing, two drill presses, a five horse-power electric motor supplying power, and his Little Giant is sold all over the world.

 

In November 1909, Mr. Stolze was married to Miss Lena Ziegel, of the town of Hamburg, Marathon County, and they have one son George, who bears his father's name. Mr. Stolze is a member of the Equitable Fraternal Union.
