Schweinler, Brig. Gen. Francis (Retirement - 1965)


Preparations are being made by Company E 734th Maintenance Battalion of the Wisconsin National Guard, for a retirement banquet November 15, honoring Brig. Gen. Francis Schweinler.


Gen. Schweinler, now a resident of Madison, started his National Guard service with the Neillsville Company 41 years ago while a young man here. The banquet and party to follow here will mark his last formal duty as a member of the National Guard.


Since his promotion to the rank of a general officer, Gen. Schweinler has served as second in command of the 32n d Division.


The retirement banquet and party is expected to be attended by many high ranking officers of both the National Guard and Chicago Corps area of the regular army.  Along with them will be many officers with whom Gen. Schweinler served during his many years in the guard.


In private life General Schweinler is public relations executive for the Wisconsin Cancer Society. He has held this position for several years since leaving the newspaper field.  For many years he published the Times at Mosinee, going there from Neillsville, where he learned the business. During his early years in Mosinee Gen. Schweinler was a partner in the newspaper of Richard Hemp, who presently is the Mosinee post master.


Gen. Schweinler is a brother of Mrs. Earl Bruhn of Neillsville.


In charge of overall arrangement s for the party here are James Hauge and Earle Siebert. Arrangements for the banquet are being made by Arne Matheson.
