Frederick Huttig, Sr.

Frederick Huttig, Sr., was born in Isserstedt, Germany, June 10, 1832.  His education was secured in the schools of his native place.  Mr. Huttig came to this country and located in Muscatine, Iowa, in 1852.  He engaged in the grocery business after a time, and remained in the business for five years.  He then went into the sash and door business, being a pioneer in that line of work in the West.  In conjunction with the sash and door business at Muscatine, Mr. Huttig engaged in selling lumber at Kellogg, Ia.  He remained in the sash and door business in Muscatine for nineteen years, and was twice honored with public office by the citizens of the town, first as a member of the City Council and then as a member of the Board of Supervisors.

     Mr. Huttig came to Kansas City in 1895.  His two sons, Frederick, Jr., and William, had preceded him to this city, and had organized and were running the Western Sash and Door Company.  Mr. Huttig went into business with them, and is  the company's vice-president.  It is by far the biggest company in that line of business in the West, and shows a most marvelous growth within recent years.

     Mr. Huttig holds membership in a number of secret societies, among them the Masons and the Knights of Honor.
