AUGUST LAUBSCHER,  superintendent and assistant to the manager of the P.O. Kellogg & Co., division of the U.S. Envelope Co., at Springfield, Mass., is a native of Rockville, Tolland county, having been born in that city March 26, 1866, a son of Abraham and Katharine (Yost) Laubscher.

During his boyhood days Mr. Laubscher attended the excellent schools of Rockville, standing at the head of his classes, and giving to his studies that persevering attention which later was to make of him one of Rockville's leading business men.  Before he was thirteen he entered the high school, and for two years, notwithstanding his youth, lead in all his studies.  At this time his school life ended, and he entered the employ of his father, keeping the books and serving in other clerical capacities.

While still in school, Mr. Laubscher amused himself during his leisure hours with a small printing press, becoming quite proficient in its manipulation.  In the spring of 1882 he entered the employ of White, Corbin & Co., at Rockville, envelope manufacturers and printers, serving this firm four years faithfully, finally rising to the position of foreman.  His next venture was as foreman of the Rockville Journal, and there he remained until he entered the employ of the Morgan Envelope Company, at Springfield, Mass., in February, 1889, as overseer of that establishment, a position of great responsibility, requiring skill and experience.  In November, 1893, Mr. Laubscher left this desirable position, to accept a still more responsible one, as manager of the Phoenix Printing Company, at Springfield, Mass., where he remained until September, 1895, when the P.P. Kellogg & Co. division of the United States Envelope Company secured his services.

On April 25, 1889, Mr. Laubscher was married in Rockville to Miss Adelaide Eliza Rix, a native of Montville, Conn., a daughter of James and Martha (Keeney) Rix.

By close attention to the details of his business, Mr. Laubscher has risen steadily to his present position, from his boyhood inspiring confidence and respect, and the success which has attended his efforts is due to his own ability, industry and conscientious performance of his duty.
