Possessing that quality which has been aptly termed "the commercial sense," C. W. Hoyer has arrived at the goal of success, occupying a commanding position in business circles of Battle Creek, and he is also a leader in civic
affairs. He was born December 22, 1867, in Boonesboro, Iowa, and there spent the period of his youth, completing his studies in business college at Burlington. On starting out in life for himself, Mr. Hoyer entered the grain
business, with which he was connected for several years, and in 1893 located at Battle Creek. He has since devoted his attention to the lumber industry, and an extensive business is the visible expression of his initiative, foresight and administrative powers. He has also invested his capital in farm land and owns a valuable ranch of two hundred and forty acres in Plymouth county.

In 1894 Mr. Hoyer was united in marriage to Miss Margaret Schwab, and four
children were born to them, namely: Lelia, who is the wife of C. W. Ohlsen, a
prosperous farmer residing in Plymouth county; Verne B., who acts as
principal of the Battle Creek high school and is also married; Lawrence E., musician and banker at Mitchell, South Dakota; and Roland D., who is connected with the Maple Valley Savings Bank. Mrs. Hoyer is an earnest member of the Presbyterian church.

Mr. Hoyer is allied with the democratic party. His fellow townsmen,
recognizing his worth and ability, have called him to positions of trust and
responsibility, and in all of his official capacities he has shown the same
executive force, keen sagacity and conscientious attention to detail which
characterize his business dealings. He has been mayor of Battle Creek, was clerk of the court for twelve years and is now president of the school board. Along fraternal lines he is connected with the Independent Order of Odd Fellows, the Knights of Pythias and the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks. Mr. Hoyer has wrought effectively for the public good and the respect accorded him is well deserved.
