  • Notes 
    • Mr. Andrew Weidenhammer was born at Heidelberg, Ont., in 1863, and shortly afterwards removed to a farm near Elmira. He attended the Elmira public school and the Berlin High School, supplementing the education received there by private study. He commenced teaching in S.S. No. 12, Woolwich. From 1886 to 1890 he taught school at Hawkesville and since 1891 at Waterloo. He has been successful as a teacher. In 1900 he was elected president of the Waterloo County Teachers Association and was twice appointed delegate to represent this Association at Toronto. In April 1903 he was elected President of the P. S. Department of the Ontario Education Association. Mr. Weidenhammer has also taken active interest in other matters. He was four years president of the Waterloo Horticultural Society and since 1899 he has been Chairman of the Waterloo Free Library. He is a staunch conservative and has done good service to his party by speaking on their platform during election campaigns. He speaks German as well as English.
