  • Notes 
    • The late Julius H. Roos was called the Father of the Board of Trade, and justly so, for it was his activity in getting the movement under way, that resulted in the Board being formed. Mr. Roos circulated a petition in February. 1890, urging the Mayor, the late George Moore, to call a meeting for the purpose of organizing. The Mayor called a meeting of citizens, as requested, and it was held in the Town Hall on March 11th, 1890, with the Mayor presiding.

      Mr. Roos did a lot of work in organizing, circulating petitions, and corresponding with the Department, and a Charter was obtained, dated April 22nd, 1890. At the first meeting to organize, after obtaining the Charter the following were elected officers of the Waterloo Board of Trade: President, Christian Kumpf ; Vice-President, William Snider; Secretary-Treasurer, Julius H. Roos; Council, R. Y. Fish, Geo. Moore, P. H. Sims, Simon Snyder, W. H. Riddell, H. J. Grasett, George Wegenast, John Shuh, I. E. Bowman, A. G. Habbick, Richard Roschmann, J. M. Scully.
