Biographical Sketch of Rudolf M. Sorensen

Rudolf M. Sorensen, conducting a large and profitable moving and storage business, with warehouse at No. 516 Center street in Racine, was born in Denmark, August 30, 1886, a son of Rasmus and Mary Sorensen, who came to the United States nine years ago and are now living in Racine.

Rudolf M. Sorensen was reared and educated in Denmark and there learned the butcher’s trade, at which he worked in his native country until he came to this city. Following his arrival here he again followed the butchering business for three years, after which he became associated with the moving and storage business, with warehouse at No. 516 Center street. He utilizes two big auto trucks, one of which is the largest in Racine, and he also has two teams. Something of the growth and volume of the business is indicated by the fact that in a single week in July. 1916, he took three loads to Chicago and also three to Milwaukee.. He has long distance telephone connection with the cities as well as the local telephone lines to aid in facilitating his business, and careful and intelligent management of his interests has brought to him substantial and well deserved success.

In 1912 Mr. Sorensen was married to Miss Theresa Sorensen and they have two children, Leonard and Arnold. He maintains a non-partisan attitude in politics and has never been a seeker for office. He is a member of the Danish Society and is much interested in efforts to promote the welfare and progress o f the district in which he lives.
