Emerich, Lyndon B. general manager of the store of the Emerich Mercantile Co. at Merrill, was born in that city Jan. 27, 1896, son of Joseph A. and Anna (WESTPHAL ) EMERICH. After graduating from the Merrill High school he spent one year as a student in the University of Wisconsin at Madison, and in 1906 he entered the Emerich Mercantile Co. as a member of the firm. He has proved himself a highly capable business man and is, as has been stated, the present manager of the company's store here. He is chairman of the Entertainment Committee and treasurer of the Merrill Rotary Club, which indicates the esteem in which he is held in the business circles of Merrill; he is a member of the Masonic order and of Edward Burns Post of the American Legion at Merrill, and he bids fair to rise very high in the commercial world. Mr. EMERICH enlisted in the aviation corps for service in the World War on Feb. 7, 1918; he was first sent to Dallas, Texas, and from there to Austin, where he attended the U. S. School of Military Aeronautics. Graduating from this school in September, 1918 he was sent to Kelly Field at San Antonio to complete his training, but the armistice was signed while he was still in training and he was discharged at Kelly Field on Dec. 16, 1918. October 23, 1919, Mr. EMERICH married Ida JOHNSON, who was born at Merrill Oct. 15, 1895, daughter of Ole and Regina JOHNSON. Mrs. EMERICH, after finishing school at Merrill, took a course in nursing at Hillcrest Hospital, Minneapolis, and subsequently practiced as a trained nurse for some years previous to her marriage. Mr. and Mrs. EMERICH are the parents of one child, Lynida R., who was born on Aug. 2, 1920.
