Henry Wuerzberger is well known in Racine where he has spent his entire life. He is now the vice president of the Racine Wholesale Wine & Liquor Company, of which his elder brother Ernest J. Wuerzberger is the president and treasurer. He was born on the 17th of November, 1885, and is a son of Ernest and Louisa (Birkholz) Wuerzberger, who are mentioned on another page of this work in connection with the history of their son Ernest J. Wuerzberger.
At the usual age Henry Wuerzberger became a public school pupil in Racine and worked his way upward through consecutive grades until he felt it incumbent upon him to earn his living following his graduation from the public schools. As a young man he worked with his father and later he traveled all over the United States. Following the death of his father he returned to Racine and assumed the management of the grocery and saloon business which his father had long carried on and which was established by his grandfather. Henry Wuerzberger continued in that business for about four years and then joined his brother, Ernest J., in the Racine Wholesale Wine & Liquor Company. This business had been incorporated in 1906 and he is now active in its management as the vice president.
