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

Arno W. Kratzsch, M. D., Page 611


ARNO W. KRATZSCH, M. D., of Cascade, Sheboygan County, Wis., located at the above-named place and engaged in the practice of his profession in January, 1887, as successor to Dr. N. C. Hall, now deceased.  Dr. Kratzsch is a native of this State, born in the town of Trenton, Washington County, December 29, 1859.  His father, Herman Kratzsch, was one of the pioneers of that county, and his death occurred in 1882.

    The Doctor received his early education in the public schools, and later pursued a two-years course in the Wisconsin State Normal School at White Water.  He was for some time engaged in the profession of teaching, being a most successful teacher.  During the last two years of his work in that direction, he was Principal of the Thiensville schools.  He did not, however, enter upon the work of teaching with a view to making it his life work.  He had long intended entering the medical profession, and his reading and study had been such as to lay the foundation for a thorough course of medicine.  In 1882 he entered Rush Medical College in Chicago, from which he was graduated in 1884.

    Soon after his graduation, Dr. Kratzsch located at Plymouth, where he was successfully engaged in the practice of his profession for some three years, when he removed to Cascade.  He holds membership with the Brainard Medical Society, and the Sheboygan County Medical Society, and is also a member of the Board of Pension Examiners.

    On September 7, 1882 was celebrated the marriage of Dr. Kratzsch and Eva E. Zaun, of Ozaukee County.  They have two daughters, Althea and Camilla.  The Doctor, though still a young man, already occupies a high rank as a physician and surgeon among the medical fraternity of Sheboygan County.  He has an extensive practice and esteemed both as a safe and successful physician and as a worthy and useful citizen.
