Emil H. Keller, the popular merchant tailor of Sheboygan, was born in Ozaukee, County, Wis., November 16, 1863. His
parents, Charles and Emma Keller, who were early, settlers of this county, are represented elsewhere in this volume.
Mr. Keller of this sketch is the eldest of five children, he being the only son. Until fourteen years of age his
time was divided between attendance at the district schools and in assisting in his father's store, he beginning in
the latter at the age of eight years.
When fourteen years old, Mr. Keller went to Milwaukee and accepted the position of book-keeper for Baum, Fisher &
Co., remaining seven years. On September 14, 1885, he opened an exclusively tailoring establishment in Sheboygan,
being the only one in the city. The business is transacted under the firm name of The American Tailors, and the best
of work is turned out at satisfactory prices. During the busy season employment is given to about twenty men.
Prior to leaving Milwaukee, Mr. Keller was married, October 6, 1887, to Miss Julia A. Simon, who is a native of the
Cream City. In his political views, the subject of this article is a Democrat, but takes no active part in political
