John Huebsch, widely known as the head of the Huebsch Laundry Company, of Eau Claire, with branches in Milwaukee and Winona, and one of the prominent, public spirited and enterprising men of this city, is a native son of Wisconsin. He was born at Buffalo City, Buffalo county, this state, to Frank and Eva Huebsch. He passed his boyhood at home, receiving his preliminary education in the public schools and came to Eau Claire in 1892 and established the Huebsch Laundry Company, which for many years has been recognized as one of the leading laundries in this part of the state, as well as the foremost one in this city, and its founder as one of her substantial, reliable and most esteemed men. While the exacting duties of his business have engaged Mr. Huebsch's chief attention, he has yet found time to devote to other affairs and was a member of the first city council elected under the commission form of government, having been elected in 1910 for a terra of two years. He made an excellent commissioner and could easily have been re-elected, but declined to be a candidate.

Mr. Huebsch is fond of outdoor pastime, his chief amusement being horseback riding, hunting and fishing. Socially he occupies a position of prominence. He is a member of the Eau Claire Club, the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks, the Modern Woodmen, Maccabees and Eagles. In November, 1889, Mr. Huebsch was married to Miss Christina Sink and they have an interesting family of two children Benjamin J. and Laura Huebsch.
