Sigmond Sanger, member of the Toledo bar and also identified with many interests which directly affect the welfare,
progress and happiness of the community at large, was born August 5, 1873, in Austria-Hungary, a son of Sol and
Pauline (Klein) Sanger. He obtained a public school education in the schools of Toledo, for he was but a young
lad when brought to the new world. Passing through consecutive grades, he was graduated with the class of 1889
of the Toledo high school, and then, having determined to make the practice of law his life work, he became a student
in the University of Michigan, where he won the LL. B. degree as a member of the class of 1899. Immediately after
his return to Toledo he entered upon active practice, and since 1910 has practiced as a member of the firm of Brown,
Hahn & Sanger, occupying an enviable position in the legal circles of Toledo.
During the World war Mr Sanger took an active interest in upholding the government and promoting the work growing
out of war conditions. He was ward chairman during the Third, Fourth and Victory Loan drives and also was active
as a member of the War Savings and War Chest committees. He has been a close student of modern day conditions and
is ever seeking to support justice and the right. During the war he was also chairman of a rent profiteering committee,
seeking to prevent excessive rents, and also served on a committee to aid war risk insurance cases.
Mr. Sanger was married in 1919, to Margaret H. Dreyfus. Questions of public interest have been closely studied
by him and at all times he keeps abreast with the best thinking men of the age concerning political, sociological
and economic conditions. Since 1919 he has been president of the Toledo Public Library and is doing effective work
in upholding and maintaining the high standards of this organization. He belongs to the Toledo and Ohio Bar associations
and he commands at all times the respect and confidence of his colleagues and contemporaries in the profession
as well as of the general public.
