Welcome to our second installment of Facial Hair Friday! In honor of Movember, we have been digging through our historical archives to find magnificent moustaches from Sauk City’s Past. This week we visit the Naffz Family.
Patriarch Charles Naffz came to the area from Würzburg, Bavaria and settled near present day Merrimac. He was instrumental in organizing the first schools in the area. A trust established with the Sauk City Library allows us to purchase a number of science books each year. He married Rosalie Bosch in 1849 and the two had a whopping 8 children. What he also had, was a stellar ‘stache.
Dr. Edwin Naffz, one of the younger Naffz children became a Medical Doctor. He decided to grow not only a moustache, but a full beard.
Last, and certainly not least in the ‘stache department, is Victor Hugo Naffz, the third oldest Naffz child. He relocated to Chicago to become a salesman for a wholesale firm there. He maintained his roots, however, and grew a moustache that can only be described as breathtaking.
That’s it for this week. If you missed last week’s post, you can take a look at it right here. You won’t be disappointed.
