Biography of Julius Dietz


Dietz, Julius, Buffalo, son of Martin and Otilla (Stapf) Dietz, was born in Germany, April 14, 1846, and came to this country with his parents in 1853, settling in Buffalo, where he has since resided. He attended the public and parochial schools, and then obtained employment in E. & B. Holmes's planing-mill and lumber yard. He has followed the lumber business ever since. Mr. Dietz is, without doubt, one of the best known factors in the lumber trade in the city of Buffalo, having been in the business in various capacities for a period covering forty years, during which time he has made many friends among those who are directly interested in building, contracting, etc. He is at present the manager of the Michigan Street Planing Mill Company, and also of the Buffalo Maple Flooring Company. Mr. Dietz was a promoter of the first loan association organized in Buffalo, which held its first meeting on March 2, 1869, and which was called the Buffalo Savings & Aid Association. He is a member of the C. M. B. A. and of the Second Regiment of New York State Uniformed Catholic Knights, of which regiment he has acted as commissary since its formation.
