AUBREY LINDEN KUHLMAN. Colonel Kuhlman, who is secretary, treasurer and general manager of the Sterlite Foundry & Manufacturing Company, manufacturers of "Sterlite" metal products, at Auburn, judicial center of DeKalb County, is a native son of this vital little Indiana city and in his exceptional achievement in business affairs as well as through his distinguished military career he has conferred honor upon the state of his nativity.

Colonel Kuhlman was born at Auburn on the 25th of December, 1869, and is a son of Enos and Amanda Lorena (Rhodefer) Kuhlman, the former of whom was born at Canton, county seat of Stark County, Ohio, and the latter of whom was born and reared in DeKalb County, Indiana, where, at the venerable age of eighty-four years, she now maintains her home in Auburn (1930).

Enos Kuhlman, whose death occurred August 1, 1914, at Mulhall, Oklahoma, and whose mortal remains rest in a cemetery at that place, was a son of William and Mary (Hoover) Kuhlman, who were born and reared in Pennsylvania and who became pioneer settlers in Stark County, Ohio, where their old home farm is now largely included in the City of Canton. William Kuhlman was a grandson of John and Anna Dorothea (Krieger) Kuhlman, who came from their native Holland to America in the year 1764 and became Colonial settlers in Penn's Valley, Center County, Pennsylvania. Of the children of Enos and Amanda L. (Rhodefer) Kuhlman three sons survive the honored father and all are residents of Auburn: Col. Aubrey L., William O. and George W.

In the public schools of Auburn Colonel Kuhlman continued his studies until he was graduated, at the head of his class, in 1887. Thereafter he became bookkeeper and a salesman for a local lumber concern, with which he continued his alliance five years, during the last three of which he was yard manager. Upon severing this connection he became lumber inspector with the Auburn Manufacturing Company, manufacturers of carriage bodies, and within a year he was elected secretary and treasurer of the company, for which he soon afterward became general manager also. He took this concern from the hands of a receiver, accumulated a surplus of thirty-five percent, and brought the concern to a status that enabled it to pay ten percent annual dividends during the course of several years. After the passing of twelve years Colonel Kuhlman resigned his official and executive position with this company to accept appointment to the office of postmaster of Auburn, his appointment having been confirmed by the United States Senate January 18, 1906. Under his progressive administration a real system was developed in handling the affairs of the Auburn postoffice, the service of which was brought to high standard, with the result that the Colonel made in this connection a record of virtually perfect administrative efficiency.

After his. retirement from the office of postmaster Colonel Kuhlman was connected with the Zimmerman Manufacturing Company, makers of motor cars, and later with the Auburn Automobile Company, he having retained executive positions with both of these corporations. In his present position, that of secretary, treasurer and general manager of the Sterlite Foundry & Manufacturing Company, he has made a record that has marked distinct progress each successive year since he assumed charge of the business. The Colonel, with utmost appreciation of and loyalty to his native city, has stood exponent of progressive policies both along business and civic lines, and his constructive activities for the benefit of Auburn have included his platting two additions to the city - one in an individual way and the other for his mother. Through this medium 143 lots have been added to the area of the city.

Colonel Kuhlman has been prominent and influential in the councils and campaign activities of the Republican party in this part of Indiana, has held various executive positions in the party organization, and his commission as postmaster of Auburn having been signed by President Roosevelt. In early life he attended the Baptist Church, but since his marriage he has attended and supported the Methodist Episcopal Church in his native city, his wife also being an active member thereof.

The military career of Colonel Kuhlman had its virtual inception January 12, 1892, when he organized and became the first captain of a local company of the Indiana National Guard. With characteristic nerve and enthusiasm he entered into the National Guard service, and March 25, 1897, he was commissioned major of infantry, his commission as lieutenant colonel having been granted December 11, 1909, and his advancement to the full rank of colonel having occurred February 1, 1913. Without any previous military training or experience, within five months after his company had been mustered into service and only eight weeks after arms and equipment had been issued thereto, the organization passed general inspection and was rated second in the State of Indiana, and this after it had drilled only twice each week. For this remarkable achievement Captain Kuhlman and his company were given special mention in general orders from the headquarters of the Third Infantry Regiment of the Indiana National Guard, and were accorded the honor of escorting the colors. Captain Kuhlman and his company participated in Governor Matthews' campaign against prize fighting in Indiana, in the fall of 1893, and in the following year served in the Chicago area, summer of 1894, during the strike of the American Railway Union, the boy captain having been selected by the commanding general to command the detached post at Whiting, Indiana, and to guard the bridges and keep the railway lines open for traffic.

As major of infantry Colonel Kuhlman had command of the Third Battalion of the One Hundred Fifty-seventh Indiana Volunteer Infantry during the Spanish-American war, and in similar capacity he was in service, in 1908, during the street railway strike at Muncie, Indiana, where during a part of the time he had command of all troops, though he was then officially a major of infantry. During the street railway strike in Indianapolis he was in command of a force of fifteen companies.

When troops were called for service in the Mexican border campaign of 1916 Colonel Kuhlman reported for duty at Fort Benjamin Harrison, June 23 of that year, and, as senior colonel, assumed command of the camp, which he named Camp Ralston, in honor of Governor Ralston. The troops mobilized for service under his command consisted of three regiments of infantry, three batteries of artillery, two field ambulance companies and a signal company. When the troops arrived on the Mexican border the automatic elevation of the nominal brigade commander to the command of the division left Colonel Kuhlman as acting brigadier-general and gave him command of the Indiana infantry brigade whenever it moved from the regular camp. Colonel Kuhlman and his regiment returned to Indiana just in time to take part prominently in the observance of the 100th anniversary of the admission of Indiana to statehood, and in the ceremonies held at the state capitol, December 11, 1916, Governor Ralston publicly commended Colonel Kuhlman and his regiment for their splendid service, and presented beautiful bronze medals provided by the state. During the period of American participation in the World war Colonel Kuhlman served in various executive positions, much of the time with the Forty-second United States Infantry. His name is now carried on the retired list of the Indiana National Guard as colonel of infantry.

In civic life Colonel Kuhlman has always taken deep interest in all public and communal affairs, and that interest has been specially pronounced in his attitude toward his native city. He has been a valued member of the Auburn Chamber of Commerce, of which he has served as a director and of which he was president two years.

Colonel Kuhlman has membership in the Military Order of Foreign Wars, the United Spanish War Veterans, the American Legion, the Sons of Veterans (Civil war), and the American Rifle Association. The United Spanish War Veterans insisted on naming the Auburn camp in his honor, and it is known as Kuhlman Camp, No. 14, Department of Indiana. It was organized in October, 1904, and includes in its membership veterans from DeKalb and neighboring counties - most of whom served in the command of Major Kuhlman in the Spanish-American war. Colonel Kuhlman is affiliated with the Masonic fraternity, the Knights of Pythias and the Pythian Sisters, and has membership in the National Geographical Society.

On Christmas day of the year 1895, his birthday anniversary, Colonel Kuhlman was united in marriage to Miss Josie B. Shull, who was born and reared in DeKalb County and is a representative of one of the sterling pioneer families of Indiana. Mrs. Helen Adaline Cunningham, only child of Colonel and Mrs. Kuhlman, has one child, Robert Kuhlman Cunningham.

Introduction to Orphan Boy

This is a biography of my abundant experiences, beginning when I was orphaned at the age of five in Indiana, 1909.

I was shifted for several years among relatives, and, once, at around eight years old, was given to strangers who wanted me for chores. When I neared eleven years of age, one of my uncles put me on a train, alone, going far west---toward another uncle living in Montana.

At twelve, I struck out on my own, working numerous farms and ranches, laboring hard from sunup until sundown. Jobs were scarce during the winters. So I rode the grub line, many times going hungry, cold and always no place to call home. If I was fortunate to find work, I labored in freezing conditions---some days twenty below.

By seventeen, I was a full-fledged ranch and farmhand. I could do any part of the roundups, even castration. I harvested fields encompassing Poplar, Montana, throughout Kansas and into Canada. I burrowed deep down in copper mines at Butte, Montana, while underage; and within a year, advanced to blasting. I rode many rails and kinds of trains when roaming; wherever the locomotive stopped, I hopped off and did chores, in or near town.

Usually I stayed two or three weeks before catching another freight. I traveled back to Indiana at age eighteen and worked various places: Illinois Steel Mill, Pullman Co., Gary Railways, Elgin-Joliet and Eastern Railroad, Standard Oil, Sheriff's Department, Indiana Harbor Sheet and Tub Mill, Anaconda Refining Co., and Builders of Boxcars.

When the depression elevated, I was out of employment like thousands of others. I couldn't find any jobs and I didn't want handouts. So I started vending eggs and additional farm products. I was thriving until the banks closed, wiping away my small funds. Again I embarked on my own, picking up discarded bottles and peddling these at speak-easies. After saving a few greenbacks, I bought perch from the great fish markets of Chicago, scaled and washed the merchandise before selling it to taverns and stores. I began gaining and grew ambitious for something else; thus, I jumped into hauling coal, which quickly led me toward black dirt excavating.

Eventually, I broke loose from pennies to dollars, acquired lots of equipment, and became known around the area as "The Black Dirt King". I also purchased three farms, fixing one up as a showplace. Several years later, failing health forced me to sell everything and retire.

Since I liked traveling and seeing different cities, I entered the Greyhound School and emerged a driver---I loved every minute. Upon marrying for the second time, I resigned, obtained forty acres, and set up a farm.

After two or three years of doing nothing, I developed restlessness and launched back into business---not as large as before, but still adequate. Subsequently, physical problems pressured me into quitting again, selling out, and moving my family to Daytona Beach, Florida. I purchased a new apartment building, which my wife and I operated. The Holly Hill Police Department hired me as a patrolman.

During my Florida occupation I ran for constable, and, following the election for sheriff, was a real estate broker. I was also Chief of Police in South Daytona twice, and once at Altamonte Springs; a switchman for Florida Coast Railroad (briefly); top salesman with mobile home sales; and a security guard at a large motel. Now I'm biding my fleeting moments, selling at flea markets.

I have traveled considerably across this country, from place-to-place, curious of each-and-every type of work. I want to try as much as possible before time runs out.

I've been on top and at the bottom. I recommend that young and old keep going, as long as the Lord gives you health. Enjoy the life you're given, letting no man stand in your way, and always trusting in God.

Russell J. Milne, Sr.

FERDINAND DRYFUS is president of the Dryfus Packing & Provision Company, Incorporated, at La Fayette, a business started sixty years ago as a retail meat market. It has made La Fayette an important center of meat packing in Indiana, and is one of the largest organizations of its kind in the Wabash Valley.

Ferdinand Dryfus was born in Bavaria, Germany, March 26, 1860. He had the opportunities of attending German schools, but was only fourteen when, in 1874, he came to America and joined his brother Leopold Dryfus at La Fayette. From that time his education came in the intervals of hard work and not from contact with books. He early learned that the realization of his desires depended upon hard effort and persistent application, and on this basis his education for a practical business man was unlimited.

When he came to La Fayette one of the city's retail meat markets was conducted under the name Dryfus & Sharp. From this was developed a general slaughtering and packing business, and from catering to a strictly local trade the house began supplying retail meat dealers throughout the city, then over the county, and reaching to steadily larger circles of trade.

Ferdinand Dryfus was a worker, and his industry and energy were early recognized, so that by 1880, when he was twenty years of age, he was taken into the partnership of Dryfus & Sharp. In 1890 he bought the interest of James Sharp, and after that the firm was continued as L. & F. Dryfus, by himself and his brother. Leopold Dryfus had come to La Fayette and had started the business of Dryfus & Sharp in 1871. In 1891 the Dryfus Packing & Provision Company was incorporated and Mr. Leopold Dryfus was president and active head of the business until his death in 1917. Ferdinand Drytus was then elected president as his successor and in April, 1922, he acquired the interests of his deceased brother, and the Dryfus Packing & Provision Company is now a family corporation, with himself as president, his daughter, Fanny Dryfus Urwitz, vice president, E. S. Urwitz, treasurer, and M. J. Silverman, secretary.

Mr. Ferdinand Dryfus has been an active figure in this business for half a century. During that time he has bought more live stock than any other packer or dealer in Tippecanoe County. The business today is conducted in a model plant covering four acres of ground, employing two hundred people, and six traveling salesmen introduce the products over an extensive territory in Michigan, Southern Illinois, Kentucky and Indiana, and a large part of the output is exported to England and Europe. The company also operates four retail markets in La Fayette.

Mr. Dryfus is also vice president of the National Fowler Bank, is a director of the La Fayette Telephone Company, a stockholder in the First Merchants Bank, in the Farmers & Traders Bank, in the city Trust Company, and in the First National Bank of Boswell Indiana. He is a director of the Star City Building & Loan Company and treasurer ane director of the La Fayette Union Stockyard Company.

Mr. Dryfus married Flora Mayer, a native of La Fayette. Their two daughters are Mrs E. S. Urwitz and Mrs. M. J. Silverman. Mr Dryfus is a member of the Chamber of Commerce, the Jackson Club, has been quite active in the Democratic party for a number of years, and is a member of the B. P. O. Elks. For over twenty years he was a member of the La Fayette City Council.

MOSES SCHULTZ, president and manager of the Schultz Department Store at La Fayette, is a business man whose success has been the result of long experience, beginning when a boy and involving the mastery of merchandising through the difficult process of learning everything by experience.

Mr. Schultz was born at Louisville, Kentucky, November 24, 1864, son of Bernard and Henrietta Schultz. His formal education in public schools was acquired at Louisville, but at the age of thirteen he began his business career as cash boy in the Moses Meyer Dry Goods Store. With this establishment he worked until he was sixteen, then for four years was assistant manager of a general store in West Tennessee. During the following seven or eight years he was on the road as a traveling salesman for a wholesale stationery house. This house failed and when he was twenty-three years of age he lost all his savings.

It was in 1894 that Mr. Schultz located at La Fayette and began the business which today is represented by a large store, with 12,000 square feet of floor space covered by merchandise and employing about fifty persons in the different departments. It is primarily a woman's store, specializing in ready-to-wear garments and accessories, and the store has done much to contribute to La Fayette's prosperity as a market and retail shopping center.

Mr. Schultz is a member of the Masonic fraternity and Knights of Pythias, and has been generous and public spirited in all his relationships with the community. He married Fannie Levinson, who was born and reared at Shelbyville, Indiana. They have one son, Bernard L. Schultz, who was born in 1894. He married Mary Howard and they reside at Davenport, Iowa. Bernard Schultz was in training with the air service during the World war, getting his ground training in Ohio, and later was at Tours, France, where he was promoted to the rank of first lieutenant in aviation.

WILLIAM P. SIDWELL. Among Indiana bankers William P. Sidwell, of Frankfort, is distinguished by a record of over fifty years of consecutive service with one institution, the First National Bank of Frankfort, of which he is now president. The confidence reposed in his judgment and integrity as a citizen and business man in that community is fully consistent with his long record of faithful service.

Mr. Sidwell was born at Rockville, Parke County, Indiana, January 31,1857, and is a descendant on both sides of old and substantial American families. Needham Sidwell, a native of England, came to America in Colonial times, first settling in Virginia, later in Maryland, and subsequently in Pennsylvania. He was a lawyer by profession, and one of the very able representatives of the law, doing most of his work in the pioneer communities of the Appalachian Mountain districts. Needham had a son, Levi Sidwell, who was born in Pennsylvania, in 1770, and became a pioneer of the new State of Ohio. It was at Chillicothe, Ohio, the first capital of that state, that Levi Sidwell, Jr., was born March 25, 1813. After leaving school he entered the dry goods business and about 1840 moved to Rockville, Indiana, where he was a merchant forty years. He retired in 1880, and he died at Indianapolis in 1906, when ninety-three years of age. He was a man of considerable influence in politics in the western part of the state and was chosen a delegate to the Indiana constitutional convention of 1851. At that time he was a Democrat, but he became a Republican during the Civil war. He was a lifelong Presbyterian. Levi Sidwell, Jr., married, May 8, 1855, Margaret A. Rice, and one of their four children is Mr. William P. Sidwell of Frankfort. The Rice family were likewise Colonial settlers of America. One of the ancestors of this family was John Knox, the famous Scotch churchman and philosopher. The Rice family were pioneers in Southwestern Pennsylvania, where the great-grandfather of Margaret A. Rice founded Rice's Fort in Washington County. This fort is frequently mentioned in the annals of pioneer life there and served as a protection from the hostile Indians. It was established long before the Revolution. Members of the family served in the war for independence. Later they moved to Kentucky, and it was from that state that Isaac and Narcissa Montague (Allen) Rice came to Indiana in the early 1820s, settling at Waveland in Montgomery County. Margaret A. Rice was born at Waveland, March 17, 1833, and after graduating from the Waveland Academy taught school.

William P. Sidwell graduated from the Rockville High School in 1877, at the age of twenty, and immediately entered upon his life work as bookkeeper in a Rockville bank. A year and a half later he moved to Frankfort, where he began service in the First National Bank, which has continued without a break for fifty-two years. The first six years he was bookkeeper, was then made teller, holding that office seven years, was promoted to assistant cashier, in 1893 to cashier, and is now president of the bank. His name has been associated with many of the constructive financial and business undertakings in Frankfort. In 1901 he organized the Frankfort Loan & Trust Company, serving for many years as secretary and treasurer, and is now ts president. He helped establish the first electric light plant, which was later taken over by the city, was one of the original directors of the Frankfort Industrial Association, and for fourteen years was a stockholder in the old National Gas Company.

Mr. Sidwell is a Republican, member of the Masonic fraternity, and has served as an elder in the Presbyterian Church.

He married, September 12, 1882, Miss Caroline Charline Campbell. She was born at Winchester, Indiana, and is of pure Scotch ancestry on both sides. Her parents were John A. and Sarah A. (Hamilton) Campbell. Her father was a Presbyterian minister. Of the three children born to Mr. and Mrs. Sidwell, Chauncy and Keith died in infancy. A twin brother of Keith is Paul Sidwell, who for over sixteen years has been professor of English at Purdue University at La Fayette.

ELMER LINTON McKNIGHT is a member of an old and honored family in Benton County, where the name has been prominently associated with business and politics for over sixty years. Mr. McKnight himself was a merchant, but is now in his third consecutive term as postmaster of Fowler.

He was born in Benton County, September 2, 1870. His, grandfather, Linton McKnight, came of old Virginia ancestry. His father, James A. McKnight, settled in Benton County in 1867, after having served as a Union soldier in the Civil war with Company F of the Seventy-second Indiana Volunteers. He was in the battle of Chickamauga and other engagements. Largely through him the Govern-ent established a postoffice at Boswell and in 1870 he was made postmaster of that town, and he was later elected to the office of county auditor. The McKnights have been prominent in the Republican party in Benton County since the time of the Civil war.

James A. McKnight, father of Elmer L., was born in Ohio and was a capable business man of Benton County. He was also active in politics and served as county auditor from 1885 to 1893. James A. McKnight married Dorcas A. Smith, daughter of James Smith. They had three sons: Elmer L.; Charles B., who was cashier of the First National Bank of Fowler when he died in 1927, married Laura A. Sheetz and left four daughters; and William A. McKnight, of Boswell, who married Adessa German and has one daughter.

Elmer L. McKnight was educated in the grade and high schools of Fowler, took a business college course at Lafayette, and for thirty years was associated with his father and brothers in the mercantile business at Fowler and Boswell. On January 1, 1922, he was appointed postmaster of Fowler by President Harding. His second appointment came from President Coolidge in 1926. In 1930 he was appointed for this third term, during the administration of President Hoover. His fitness for office and popular favor is well expressed in a comment of the local press upon his appointment:

"The new term upon which he enters this week will be the third term for Postmaster McKnight, and it is believed that upon its expiration he will have held the office of postmaster longer than any previous incumbent of the office. This fact speaks volumes for the efficiency of the postoffice service here under him, and the fact that Fowler can look forward to four more years of first class service will be welcome news to local people."

Mr. McKnight married, October 16, 1895, Miss Margaret Parker, daughter of Henry C. and Harriett Parker; of Benton County. They have two sons, Meredith Elmer and George Parker. Meredith, who is a graduate in accountancy from the University of Illinois, now connected with the Commercial Credit Company of Chicago, married Miss Alma Klover, daughter of Henry and Ada Klover, of Shelbyville, and has a son, Robert Meredith. George McKnight was educated in Indiana University and is also in Chicago, being manager of the Porcelain Enamel Institute of Chicago. George McKnight, while in college, was editor of Arbutus, which was ranked among the five foremost college publications in America. He married Lileth Foltz, of Fairbury, Illinois.
