Biography of Philip W. Yager
Adams County, NE Biographies





Philip W. Yager is actively identified with business interests in Hastings as proprietor of Yager's bakery, which is today one of the leading productive industries of the city, conducting an extensive business and accorded a liberal patronage. He was born in Germany, August 26, 1870, and is a son of Adam and Elizabeth Yager, the latter now living. The father has passed away and was a forester in the government service.

Philip W. Yager was educated in the schools of Germany and after coming to the United States attended business college in Hastings. He sought employment here in connection with the bakery business and for seventeen years was employed in the establishment of which he is now the proprietor. Gradually in that connection he mastered every phase of the business and worked his way upward until in 1902 he purchased the plant and has since carried on the business under his own name. His trade has constantly grown and developed and has now assumed extensive and gratifying proportions. He keeps a wagon for the delivery of his goods and employs nine people. The most cleanly and sanitary conditions are maintained in the bakery and he never deviates from the highest standards in the excellence of the product.

On the 11th of January, 1891, Mr. Yager was united in marriage to Miss Christina E. Wagner, a daughter of John Wagner, of Adams county, Ohio, and to them have been born three children, Clarence P., Lloyd A. and Effie M. The family hold membership in the Baptist church and Mr. Yager belongs also to the Masonic fraternity, in which he has attained the Knights Templar degree of the York Rite and the thirty second degree of the Scottish Rite. He is also connected with the Knights of Pythias and with the Odd Fellows. His political allegiance is given to the republican party and he keeps well informed on the questions and issues of the day but never seeks nor desires office. He is a progressive and public spirited man, interested in Hastings and in the upbuilding of the state as well. He deserves much credit for what he has accomplished in a business way, for his advancement is due to close application, indefatigable energy and perseverance. His course has won for him not only deserved success but also the high respect of those with whom he has been brought in contact.
