Luderus, Fred owner, in partnership with his wife, of Hy-Mont Resort in the town of Three Lakes, Oneida County, was born at Milwaukee, Wis., Sept. 12, 1885. He was educated in the schools of Milwaukee at the age of 18 years took up professional baseball, in which he subsequently achieved great prominence, playing as a member of the Philadelphia club of the National league for 11 years. In 1920 he purchased the former Peterson farm in the town of Three Lakes, Oneida County, consisting of 200 acres, which subsequently became known as the Luderus Potato Farm. In 1920 he bought 90 acres of land on Range Line Lake, and on this he built his present resort. His main lodge is 41x43 feet in dimensions, two stories high, and has 16 rooms; there are four cottages and four rooms each, which are used as sleeping rooms, meals being served for all guests in the main lodge. There is a fleet of five boats in conjunction with the resort, and the opportunities for excellent fishing are unexcelled. The tables are set with the best the market affords, all the vegetables, milk and cream being produced on the property, and this fine food is tastily prepared and served, making the cuisine truly excellent. With these attractions and with its ideal location in the heart of the celebrated Eagle Chain region of lakes, Hy-Mont Resort offers all the facilities for a thoroughly enjoyable outing. Mr. LUDERUS spents all his time at the resort except during the baseball season, when management of the property is carried on by Mrs. LUDERUS; during the present season Mr. LUDERUS is manager of the Oklahoma City Club. His fraternal affiliations are with the Milwaukee lodges of the Masons and Elks. Mr. LUDERUS was married at Milwaukee, Wis., Oct. 9, 1906, to Miss Emma WERGIN, and Mr. and Mrs. LUDERUS have three daughters, Elda, Alice, and Audrey.
