A Tribute to Jacob Julius Dauch

A printed tribute to Jacob Julius Dauch is in the historical files of the Sandusky Library Archives Research Center. J.J. Dauch’s daughter Leola had reprints of a biography of her father which had originally appeared in the National Encyclopedia of American Biography, created to give away to relatives.

The first page of the tribute discussed his parents, as well as his many business ventures, before he became involved in the very successful Hinde and Dauch Paper Company, which was formed in 1900.

Page two goes on to discuss his wife and children, as well as his untimely death on August 15, 1918,

The third page concludes with the words of a man who knew J.J. Dauch. He said of Mr. Dauch, “His strength and simplicity, his power and modesty, is unaffected integrity, stamped him as a citizen which Sandusky could ill afford to lose and one whose loss to his family and relatives is beyond worldly computation.”

Visit the Sandusky Library to learn more about J.J. Dauch and other former residents of Sandusky and Erie County.
