Albert Freyberg, Jr., superintendent of the Sheboygan Novelty Company, is a native son of this city, his birth having here occurred April 3, 1875. He is the son of Albert Freyberg, Sr., and Fredericka (Groh) Freyberg. The father, a native of Germany, has long been a resident of Sheboygan and is identified with its business interests, being the head of the C. B. Freyberg Lumber Company.

Albert Freyberg, Jr., was educated in the public schools of Sheboygan and later began working for the Sheboygan Novelty Company, with which he has since been connected. In June, 1901, he became a stockholder in the concern and in that year, having shown particular ability in mastering detail and in handling the work of the plant, he was made superintendent, a position which he has since held.

Mr. Freyberg chose for his life companion and helpmate Miss Emma Schmidt, the daughter of Robert Schmidt, a native of Germany, and they are the parents of two children, Lucile and Margaret. Mr. Freyberg belongs to the Knights of Pythias, his membership being in Sheboygan Lodge, No. 81. He is one of the representative young business men of Sheboygan. He has since earliest manhood been a steady, faithful and conscientious worker and in addition to holding the responsible position of superintendent of the Sheboygan Novelty Company, is interested in the lumber company of which his father is the head. Being a native son of Sheboygan, which city has always been his home, he has an extensive acquaintance throughout the city, county and in other parts of the state. He is one of those excellent young men which any city is fortunate in having as one of her citizens.
