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.
