For several years was the largest private employer in Northfield MN in his cigar factory - up to 30 men.  He made the best selling cigar in southern Minnesota.  He operated the cigar factory / store from about 1900 to 1915.  He owned and operated a bar in Dundas, MN from about 1915 - 1917.  Was on City Council, was city bandmaster and music teacher, and had a dance orchestra for 35 years. Cornet was favorite instrument.  All sports, good horses, dogs and reading were his hobbies.  He was well liked by many friends and was generous to a fault.
