    Lauren W. See. Among the younger members of the business fraternity of Tippecanoe City, one who is making rapid progress in forging to the front is Lauren W. See, proprietor of a flourishing garage business. Mr. See is a product of the agricultural districts, having been born in Elizabeth township, Miami county, in 1896, a son of William and Clara (Hoover) See, and a brother of Miss Verna See. After attending the country schools and those of Troy, Lauren W. See engaged in agricultural pursuits at home, and was thus employed until he was twenty years of age, when he came to Tippecanoe City and purchased the automobile garage business formerly conducted by Harry Peters. Mr. See had established a good business and was progressing rapidly, when his establishment was destroyed by fire, in 1919. He lost no time in replacing this with a handsome and substantial brick garage of imposing appearance, 75x80 feet, which offers splendid garage facilities, and in connection with which he conducts a fully-equipped repair department, where competent mechanics are always in attendance. Mr. See is also local agent for the Studebaker and Overland automobiles, and carries a full line of all standard accessories, tires, etc. He has built up a splendid business, which is growing rapidly, and which has been the result of his own enterprise and industrious labor. Mr. See married Helen, daughter of Charles McCoole, a well-known agriculturist of Elizabeth township, and to this union there has been born one child, Lauren McCoole. Mr. See and his wife were active in all local war activities, and he has also discharged a good citizen's responsibilities in civic affairs. He has several social connections, and is the center of a wide circle of friends at Tippecanoe City.
