Subsequently, he graduated from the Sheboygan High School. When thirteen years of age, he began to learn the jeweler's trade, serving three years with Adam Imig. For two years thereafter he worked in St. Paul, Minn., and for an equal length of time in Chicago. Returning to his native city, he was appointed receiver of a crockery store by the Bank of Sheboygan. Iu connection with that business, he assisted his father in insurance. In December, 1885, he opened up a jewelry business on his own account, having carried it on continuously since.
