A. W. Kuether

Mr. Kuether is one of the highly respected and enterprising citizens of Sheboygan, where he is successfully engaged in the photographer's business. He was born in Dane county, Wisconsin, April 9, 1884, and is the son of Fred and Henrietta (Post) Kuether. The father was a native of Germany and removed to America in 1879. He took up his residence in Dane county, Wisconsin, and there remained for a period of six years, after which he removed to Sheboygan, where he spent the remaining days of his life, his death occurring in 1903. He was married in Germany to Miss Henrietta Post, and to them seven children were born, three of whom are still living: Emma, who is the wife of G. C. Glaeser, a photographer of Sheboygan; Minnie, who married William Grams, a farmer of Deerbrook; and A. W., of this review.

A. W. Kuether was reared in his parents' home and educated in the public schools of Sheboygan. After completing his early education he learned photography and established himself in that business in 1907 in Sheboygan. In his first independent venture in business he was associated with C. M. Von Waid, with whom he continued until 1910, at which time he sold his entire interest in the business to Mr. Von Wald. He then purchased a store on the corner of Eighth and St. Clair streets, where he established one of the finest photograph galleries in Sheboygan, and to the interests of his business he has since given his entire attention and has met with very gratifying success.

On April 24, 1909, Mr. Kuether was united in marriage to Miss Ella Zimbal, a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Herman Zimbal, both natives of Sheboygan county. To Mr. and Mrs. Kuether has been born a son, Milton. Mr. Kuether is one of the best known and most accomplished photographers in the city of Sheboygan. His fine and well appointed. gallery, located on the corner of Eighth and St. Clair streets, is one of the best known places of its kind in this part of the state. His success has been due entirely to his ability as a photographer, his artistic inclinations and the constant and unremitting attention with which he has cared for the interests of his business. He is universally respected among his friends and associates and is interested in every enterprise seeking the improvement of the people of his state and county.
