Edward J. Brauer, secretary of the Brauer Brothers Manufacturing Company, has been active in the development of what is now one of the important productive interests of St. Louis, the firm being engaged in the manufacture of ladies’ fine shoes and leather and textile sporting goods. Mr. Brauer was born in St. Louis, March 3, 1880, and is a brother and partner of Arthur J. Brauer in connection with whose sketch on another page of this work there is given the record of the family. He was educated in the public schools of St. Louis and when twenty-one years of age started out to earn his own livelihood. He became associated with his brother, Arthur J., in the establishment of the present business and their combined efforts have been instrumental in the continuous growth and development of the trade, which is now one of gratifying proportions. He is likewise president of the Surety Manufacturing Company of St. Louis.

In East St. Louis in 1911 Mr. Brauer was married to Miss Ada P. Chamberlin, a native of St. Louis and a daughter of John W. and Mary (Pamplin) Chamberlin. The Chamberltns are an old southern family and Mr. and Mrs. Brauer have become parents of two children: Janice Mary, born in St. Louis, June 17, 1911; and Richard Edward, born in this city May 15, 1913.

In politics Mr. Brauer maintains an independent course. He is a member of the Missouri Athletic Association and the Chamber of Commerce and is keenly interested in all that has to do with the upbuilding and progress of the city and the extension of its business connections. His entire life has here been passed and he has a large circle of warm friends won to him for what he has accomplished and the sterling worth of his character.
