Source: "Portrait and Biographical Record - Published 1894 by Excelsior Publishing Co., Chicago" Pages 657 - 658

Adolph J. Pfister, Assistant Cashier of the Bank of Sheboygan, is a young man well known in business circles, and is a scion of one of the pioneer families of this county. An account of his parents, Caspar and Catherine Pfister, will be found elsewhere in this work. A. J. Pfister, as he is usually known, is a native of the Chair City, born September 10, 1868. Having attended the parochial schools until twelve years of age, he spent two years in the public schools of the city of his nativity. Subsequently he pursued a commercial course in Charles Mayer's Business College, of Milwaukee, graduating in 1885. The same year he began as messenger boy for the Bank of Sheboygan. As his experience and business qualifications showed him competent to fill more important positions, he was advanced, step by step, until he became Assistant Cashier in 1891. He also holds the position of Treasurer of the Ackermann Institute, an enterprise having for its object the cure of the morphine and strong-drink habit.

Mr. Pfister was married September 8, 1892, to Miss Emma Vogl. The wedding ceremony was performed in Columbus, Wis., the native city of the bride. Her parents, Franz and Anna Vogl, emigrated from Germany to the United States, being among the early settlers of Columbus.

In religious faith, Mr. and Mrs. Pfister are Catholics, holding membership with the Church of the Holy Name. He also belongs to the Catholic Knights of Wisconsin, and to the Turners' Society. Politically, he is a Democrat.

Mr. Pfister is quite well known throughout the county, and by courteous and fair treatment of those he has met in a business way, he has made a host of friends.
