Albrecht, William Jr. (27 May 1877 – 19??)
WILLIAM ALBRECHT, JR., who is in the real estate, loan and life insurance business at Wausau, has been a resident of this city since the fall of 1903 and is a well known and representative citizen. He was born at Mayville, Wis., May 27, 1877, and is a son of William and Caroline Albrecht.
William Albrecht was reared in his native place and attended the common and high schools, after which he gained a practical knowledge of blacksmithing and worked at this trade under his father for six years. In September, 1903, he came to Wausau and embarked in the real estate and insurance business and remained alone until January 1, 1911, when the business became a corporation under the style of Albrecht, Bock & Chellis, of which Mr. Albrecht became secretary. In July, 1912, he sold his interest in the same to A. A. Bock & Son, and as an individual re-embarked in the same business, securing a convenient office in the National American Bank Building. He is agent for the Northwestern Mutual Life Insurance Company of Milwaukee, an organization that enjoys a large amount of public confidence in Wisconsin. Mr. Albrecht handles mainly farm and suburban property and has been the means of bringing considerable capital to this section for investment.
In 1903 Mr. Albrecht was married to Miss Clara Guth, of Mayville, Wis. He is active in politics only to the extent that good citizenship demands and fraternally is identified with the Masons.
