Biography - HENRY WEILER

Henry Weiler was born on a farm northwest of Clay City, October 12, 1905, came to Clay City with his parents in 1923 and attended the Clay City schools.

After serving Murvin Bros. as clerk in their store here for two years he resigned his position last March and entered into the grocery business for himself with W. H. Banker, buying out the interest of R. E. Duff.

Henry, whose occupation prior to clerking in a store was assisting his father in looking after the farm's products. In entering the business game he found it one of pleasure to him and that feature, naturally, is responsible to a certain degree in developing friendship between him and those he served. His desire to be of more service, possibly was partially responsible for his desire to enter into business for himself where he could apply himself in his own way.
