Biography of George Wagner

A man whose perseverance, industry and business sagacity has been largely instrumental in the establishment of one of Rock Island’s largest industries was George Wagner, one of the founders of the Rock Island Brewing Company, a man in whom those potential elements that are essential in every successful career, seemed to center. George Wagner was born in Wurtemberg, Germany, January 13, 1832. He died January 10, 1907, in Rock Island. In his boyhood he attended the common schools of his native land, and there acquired a fair education. After leaving school he was apprenticed to a baker, and in this apprenticeship he remained several years learning his trade. In 1853 Mr. Wagner, realizing that in America a young man willing and able to work could achieve more than he could possibly hope to in the older countries, left Germany and came to the United States, locating in New York. After working at his trade for two years in that city, he, together with a cousin, came west, settling in Rock Island. Here the two embarked in the bakery business, which they carried on for two years, at the end of which time Mr. Wagner sold out his interest to his cousin who continued in the business. Mr. Wagner moved to Moline, where he again established a bakery, continuing in business for eight years. During these years he was successful,...

Biography of Robert Wagner

One of Rock Island’s native sons, a man upon whom devolves to a large extent the management and control of a great and growing industry, is the subject of this sketch, Robert Wagner, president of the Rock Island Brewing Company. He is the son of George Wagner, the story of whose life and rise in the world appears elsewhere in this book, and Frederica Wagner. He was born in Rock Island, June 15, 1866. During his boyhood he attended the city’s public schools and private German schools, fitting himself for entrance in the University of Iowa, at Iowa City. After attending this institution, he entered the United States Brewers’ Academy, in New York City, where he perfected himself in the art of brewing and graduated in 1887, thus fitting himself to take charge of and continue the brewing industry which his father had build up. Having acquired a thorough theoretical knowledge of the subject, he returned to Rock Island, and being desirous of a practical working knowledge as well, he entered his father’s brewery as foreman. He continued in this position for two years, mastering every detail of the business, and then entered into the business with his father, where he remained until the formation of the Rock Island Brewing Company, a merger of the brewing industries of the city. He was elected president of this new stock company,...

Biography of George Wagner

George Wagner, whose home is near Beloit in Mitchell County, is one of the men who bore the heat and burden of the day in introducing civilization to this section, and when the many hardships and vicissitudes encountered by him and his fellows are recalled it seems that no reward in comfort and circumstances could be too great for his declining years. Mr. Wagner is one of the few early settlers who still retain and reside on their first homestead. On coming to Kansas Mr. Wagner migrated from Adams County, Illinois, spent a short time at Selina, where he arrived in December, 1869, but in the following year started for Asherville Township in Mitchell County. Here he took up the homestead which he now owned and occupies. It would be a long story to recount all the hardships that he and his brave wife endured, all the troubles of drought, grasshopper plagues, hard times, poor markets, bad roads which beset and hampered him and the other early settlers. Mr. Wagner was one of those who endured through it all and finally came to their reward. Thus in order to retain his claim and yet provide a home for his wife and children Mr. Wagner in the early days would work for wages of 25 cents a day and would accept his pay in any commodity which he could use....
