William C. Weeks

Source: "Portrait and Biographical Record - Published 1894 by Excelsior Publishing Co., Chicago" Pages 361 - 362

William C. Weeks, architect and builder, Sheboygan, was born in that city February 16, 1856, and is a son of Alvin Land Elizabeth C. Weeks. Mr. Weeks' father, now deceased, was one of the early architects and builders of the Chair City, and one of the most prominent during his life. (See sketch of Alvin L. Weeks elsewhere in this work.)

The subject of this sketch was educated in the schools of his native city, and studied architecture and building under the direction of his father. He was associated with his father, after whose death he succeeded to the business and has continued it very successfully. Among the many buildings erected by William C. Weeks, may be named the Theiman and Kaas Block, the Foeste store-building and the residences of the following-named citizens of Sheboygan: Messrs. Thomas Long, David Jenkins, A. D. Crocker, R. E. Crocker, A. D. Barrows, G. B. Mattoon, D. W. Halsted, John Mogensen and others. He has the designing and building of the new hotel on the site of the Commercial, which promises to be one of the finest buildings in the city.

In politics, Mr. Weeks is a Republican, but has never been an aspirant for the honors of public office, rather preferring to devote his time and energies to his chosen profession. Although a young man, he has been remarkably successful, which fact bespeaks for him a high position in his calling.
