Thomas Kulbok is the proprietor of the Kulbok Hotel, located on Eighth street, Sheboygan. His birth occurred in Russia on the 21st of December, 1875, his father being George Kulbok, a native of Russia. The parents are both dead.
Thomas Kulbok emigrated to America in 1899, beginning his business career in a new country in the city of Baltimore, where he remained for only a short time, after which he moved to Sheboygan, Wisconsin, where he secured employment with the Phoenix Chair Company, continuing in the service of this concern for two and a half years. At the expiration of this period he became an employee of the Northern Furniture Company, with whom he remained for several years. In 1905 he started in business for himself. During that year he purchased the hotel which bears his name and which he has conducted for the past seven years, making steady progress in his venture as proprietor and manager of one of the prosperous hostelries of Sheboygan.
Mr. Kulbok was married in Russia, in November, 1899, in which year he emigrated with his wife to this country. Three children have been born to them, two of whom are still living, Annie and Elsie, both at home and pupils of the public schools of Sheboygan. Mr. Kulbok's successful business career in America is a high testimonial to his industry and frugality. Coming to this country without a knowledge of its people or language, he soon became one of its useful and respected citizens. He is held in high esteem by his associates and is numbered among the leading and representative business men of Sheboygan.
