Dr. Frederick Peter Knauf, of Kiel, was born in Sheboygan, Wisconsin, March
18, 1877, a son of Nicholas and Emily (Dietrich) Knauf. The father was a
merchant by occupation. Dr. Knauf attended the public school in Chilton,
Wisconsin, and began his medical studies in Buffalo, New York, finishing
them at the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Chicago, from which he
was graduated in the class of 1900. Immediately thereafter he began the
practice of his profession in New Holstein, Wisconsin, but after three
years came to Kiel, where he has since remained, carrying on a general
practice. He is a member of the American Medical Association and the
Wisconsin State Medical Society and is president of the Manitowoc County
Medical Society. He was one of the organizers and serves at present for a
second term as president of the Calumet County Medical Society. While in
college he belonged to the Alpha Kappa fraternity.
Dr. Knauf was married in Chicago, in 1902, to May Grealy, a daughter of
John Grealy, now retired. Both he and his daughter were born in Dublin,
Ireland. Three children have been born to Dr. and Mrs. Knauf, Margaret,
Katherine and Frederick Arthur. The family are Catholics and belong to SS.
Peter and Paul church of Kiel. In addition to giving his patients the
benefit of his years of study and experience Dr. Knauf has also served
several terms as village health officer and takes pride in having borne a
share in raising the sanitary conditions here to the standard deemed
necessary for the preservation of the good health of the public.
