    Louis Frederick Dietrich was born in St. Agatha on Sept. 13, 1868. Around 1888 he apprenticed as a blacksmith in Baden and in 1892 opened his own shop in his home village. The following year he expanded his business by adding a salesroom for handling John Deere farm implements. From 1901-1909, he was an assessor for Wilmot Township. Later in 1909 Dietrich moved to Waterloo, becoming the agent for International Harvester in 1911. Four years later he became the town’s first automotive dealer, acting as a sub-agent for the Ford Motor Co. In 1916 he secured the Dodge franchise for Waterloo County while continuing to operate his farm implement business in a separate part of the building....From City of Waterloo Museum
