    W. J. KROGER

    W. J. Kroger, secretary and treasurer of the Troy Body Company, of Troy, has been identified with this concern since the time of its organization and is accounted one of the substantial and capable business men of his native city. He was born at Troy, June 6, 1888, a son of Fred and Elizabeth Kroger, and received his early education in the public schools. When he was still little more than a lad, he learned telegraphy and secured a position as telegrapher and station agent, a capacity in which he continued for a number of years. When the Troy Body Company was founded at Troy, in February, 1919, Mr. Kroger became cashier of the new concern, a position from which he has since advanced to the post of secretary and treasurer. Mr. Kroger, while still a young man, has already gone far in the business world, and has the unqualified confidence of his associates, while his standing in business circles of the city is that of a man who has impressed his ability upon others. The Troy Body Company is one of the important manufacturers of automobile bodies, and at this time makes the bodies for the Chalmers, H. C. S. Special, Liberty, Grant, Monroe, Sears-Scoville, Louisiana, Texas and Tulsa cars. Mr. Kroger is a member of the Knights of Columbus and the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks. He married Miss Edith Maley, of Piqua, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Edward F. Maley.
