Herman Wolff, well known as a successful and popular restaurant proprietor of Ithaca, was born in Strasburg,
Germany, on the 11th of June, 1874, a son of Herman and Caroline (Dickman) Wolff. He attended the public schools
of the fatherland until thirteen years of age and In 1887 accompanied his parents on their emigration to the new
world, the family coming direct to Nebraska and locating in Arlington, Washington county. Later in the same year
they removed to Fort Calhoun and there Herman Wolff remained until 1909, when he came to Ithaca and here embarked
in business as a barber. Subsequently he became the proprietor of the restaurant which he is now conducting a well
patronized establishment which is noted for its excellent cuisine and service.
On the 18th of March, 1908, Mr. Wolff was united in marriage to Miss Hattie Nichols, a daughter of Fred and Mary
(Fester) Nichols, both of whom were born in Germany. The latter now makes her home at Fort Calhoun, Nebraska, while
the mother of our subject is living in Omaha. To Mr. and Mrs. Wolff have been born three children, namely: Helen
C., who is deceased; Herman, attending school in Ithaca; and Herbert, a little lad of four years.
Politically Mr. Wolff is a stalwart democrat, while his religious faith is that of the German Lutheran church.
Fraternal relations have also widened his circle of friends and he is now past chancellor commander of the Knights
of Pythias and holds a clerkship in the local organization of the Woodmen of the World. His life has been well
spent, in harmony with his professions, and in every relation he has been honorable and upright, winning the warm
regard of his fellow citizens.
