Biography of Theodore S. Buerger


Buerger, Theodore S., Buffalo, was born in Wolcottsville, Niagara county, N.Y., July 4, 1863. He received a common school education and at the age of fifteen entered the notion store of T. H. Schorr, and attended Bryant & Stratton's Business College nights. After two years' service in this establishment he was offered a position, which he accepted, with Kessel & Richert, where he remained until August, 1892, when he bought a half interest in the business, whereby the copartnership of Kessel & Buerger was formed. In 1889, upon his suggestion, to meet the demand of the retail dry goods trade, the retail department was discontinued and an exclusive wholesale business was adopted. The firm is now one of the leading wholesale notion houses of Buffalo, and is especially recognized by the retailer as the supply house for hosiery, yarns and many other specialties. Their place of business is located in the well-lighted Fuchs fire-proof building, No. 515 Washington street.
