Frederick Huttig, Jr.

Frederick Huttig, Jr., was born in Muscatine, Iowa, August 14, 1871, son of the pioneer sash and door manufacturer of the West.  He received his early education in the public schools, and also had the advantage of a high school course.  At the age of sixteen he commenced to work, accepting employment with his father's house, and it was not long until he reached a stage of efficiency that recommended him for promotion, and he was given charge of the firm's branch house at Wichita, Kas.  He succeeded so admirably that he was transferred to the more important branch at St. Joseph, Mo.  Here he remained until 1890, when he came to Kansas City to accept the position of treasurer of the Western Sash and Door Company.

     This position he still holds, and he has played no small part in developing the Western Sash and Door Company from an average concern to perhaps the greatest of its kind in the world.

     Mr. Huttig married, April 17, 1896 Miss Catherine Holmes, daughter of J. T. Holmes, one of Kansas City's pioneer citizens, and they have one boy.

    Mr. Huttig belongs to the Kansas City Club, to the Commercial Club, the Driving Club, and is an Elk and a Mason.
