Biography of Frederick W. Burow


Burow, Frederick W., Sr., was born July 21, 1833, in Prussia, Germany, and came to this country in 1843 with his parents, who settled in Buffalo. In 1847 he became an apprentice in the printing office of Brunck & Domedion, who published a German semi-weekly called the Weitbuerger. In 1853 he went to Cincinnati, O., and was employed as a compositor on a German paper there until 1855, when he returned to Buffalo and obtained employment on different English papers until 1869. He was afterward in the government printing office at Washington for five years. In 1874 he again returned to Buffalo and opened a book and job office in partnership with Louis Hansman, the firm name being Hansman & Burow. In 1888 he sold out his interest in said firm, and entered into partnership with Mr. Miller, under the firm name of Burow & Miller. Mr. Miller retired on account of poor health and Mr. Burow admitted his oldest son, Frederick W., jr., which partnership still continues. Their establishment is located on the corner of Swan and Ellicott streets, Buffalo, N. Y., and they do both English and German book and job printing, a specialty being made of fine stationery work. In 1863 Mr. Burow married Christine Köhn of Buffalo, and they have five children: Frederick W., William F., Anna, Mary and Lydia.
