 From the Portrait and Biographical Record of Sheboygan County, Wis., 1898:

William George Grasser, M. D., Page 221


WILLIAM GEORGE GRASSER, M. D., of Sheboygan, is a representative of one of the early families of that city, being a son of Michael Grasser, a well known citizen of that place, a sketch of whom may be found elsewhere in this volume.

    Dr. Grasser was one of a family of ten children, comprising three sons and seven daughters, several of whom are deceased.  The family now consists of two sons and four daughters.  The Doctor's only surviving brother is Joseph S. Grasser, who is engaged in the jewelry business in Sheboygan.  The deceased brother was Francis Grasser, the eldest of the three, who died at the age of nineteen years.

    The gentleman whose name heads this sketch was born in Sheboygan.  He was educated in the parochial schools of his native city, and at St. Francis' Seminary, near Milwaukee, where he pursued a classical course of study.  At the expiration of his college course, he entered upon his medical studies, under the preceptorship of Dr. J. J. Brown, of Sheboygan.  In 1887 he entered Rush Medical College, Chicago, where he received the degree of M. D., after a three year course.  Immediately thereafter, in March, 1890, he entered upon the practice of his profession in his native city.  During the last three years, Dr. Grasser has been Health Officer of Sheboygan, and, as a result of his labors, the sanitary condition of the city has been very much improved.

    Dr. Grasser was married September 24, 1891, to Miss Sarah Hoehle, daughter of Rev. William Hoehle, of the Methodist Episcopal Church.

    Though the youngest of the medical fraternity of the Chair City, Dr. Grasser has already established a good practice.  He received excellent advantages as a preparation for his profession, and promises to fill a prominent place among the medical fraternity of Sheboygan County.
