Borowitz, George W. (7 December 1870 - 19??)


GEORGE W. BOROWITZ, merchant tailor, at No. 212 Jefferson street, Wausau, came to this city in 1898 and has been in this business ever since. He was born in Germany, December 7, 1870, and is a son of Michael and Hulda Borowitz. In 1881 Michael Borowitz brought his family to the United States and they located at Manistee, Mich., where he conducted a tailoring establishment until his death. His widow survives. At that time George W. Borowitz was a boy eleven years of age and he completed his education in the public schools of Manistee and afterward helped his father as he learned the details of the tailor's trade with him. Afterward he attended the A. D. Rhode & Son's Cutting School at Cleveland, O., and in 1898 came to Wausau as noted above. At first he had his own tailor shop and later went into the clothing business but subsequently sold his clothing stock, but during all this time had continued his tailoring business so that it has been continuous for fifteen years. Mr. Borowitz has a fine custom trade and there are many particular people who depend largely upon his taste and skill in the selection, cut and fit of their garments.  


Mr. Borowitz married Miss Josie Kroupa, of Traverse City, Mich. They are members of St. James Catholic Church and for two years he was a member of its board of trustees. He belongs to the Knights of Columbus, the Catholic Order of Foresters, the Eagles and the Elks.
