The boyhood of Joseph L. Gaudieri was spent in his native land, where he was educated. He learned the tailoring trade at an early age in his father's shop and was thus engaged until 1908, when he went to Rome for two years. In April, 1912, he was drafted into the service of the Italian Army, in which he served for two years during the Turkish Italian War. He was discharged in August, 1914, and almost immediately came to America and settled in Columbus, where he followed his trade until September, 1917. He was then inducted into service during the World War and sent to Camp Sherman, Ohio, for training.

In February, 1922, he established a business of his own and in May, 1925, removed to his present location, 1629 West First Avenue, where he conducts an up to date tailoring establishment.

On January 20, 1921, Mr. Gaudieri was united in marriage with Miss Margaret Thomas, of Columbus, the daughter of Joseph and Mary Thomas, natives of Italy and residents of Columbus. They have no children.
