  • Notes 
    • Mr. S. Laschinger was born in New Hamburg, Ont., where he passed his youth and school days and where he entered upon the machinist trade in Senator Merner's foundry in 1864. After this he was foreman for fourteen years in the foundry of Mr. S. Merner, a son of the Senator. Then he removed to London, where he was engaged in the London Machine Tool Co.'s Works, two years. In 1887 he came to Elmira where he was manager of the Elmira branch of the Waterloo M'f'g. Co. for nearly 15 years. When the plan was taken over by the Elmira Agricultural Works Company, Mr. Laschinger became principal stockholder and retained the position of manager. As a citizen he is broad minded and liberal. He has taken active part in many measures that tended to advance the material and moral welfare of Elmira. He has been member of the Council and was for years the leading spirit in the administration of the affairs of the Public School, in which capacity he has done really good work, which is appreciated by all.
