LOUIS HAGEMANN.
Louis Hagemann, a widely known and well established building contractor at Fairfield, was born in Bonholm, Denmark, October 28, 1886, and was' there reared and educated. He early took up the trade of a carpenter and cabinetmaker and became a skilled craftsman along those lines, by the time he was eighteen years of age being recognized as a finished journeyman. In 1905, when in his nineteenth year, Mr. Hagemann came to California, locating at Fairfield, where friends of his had settled. He was working at his trade there when in the next year the destruction of San Francisco called for the services of all available skilled workers in the building trades. He at once crossed the bay and entered into building operations there, being thus engaged for two years or more. He was the first man on the job, and he aided in the construction of the great Hale Brothers department store building and the Willett office building. Mr. Hagemann subsequently returned to Fairfield and has since been engaged in business on his own account at that place, having constructed many of the important buildings there, among these being the Freitas block and the building of the Fairfield bakery. He also makes a specialty of house moving and of foundation work and has directed much heavy construction work in the area covered by his operations. The greatest distance he has been called upon to move a house was seven miles, this having been from Rock Hill to a point two miles north of Fairfield, while the least distance called for was five feet.

Louis Hagemann was united in marriage to Miss Charlotte Olson, who was born at Fairfield, a daughter of Captain Olson, a well known river navigator here, and they have two sons, Harold and Clarence. The Hagemanns own their home in Fairfield. Mr. Hagemann is a member of the local branch of the Dania Society and is also affiliated with the Independent Order of Odd Fellows and the Fraternal Order of Eagles.
