Joseph Charles Schaf, the subject of this sketch, is a native of Indiana, born in Franklin county, January, 1859, and is forty years of age. He is the son of Hon. Peter Schaf and Katherine Schaf, nee Scholl. His father, Peter Schaf, was in the United States mail line from Cincinnati, New Orleans and St. Louis, for twenty-five years, and was in the hotel business at Brookville, Ind., for twenty-seven years. He retired from active business in 1890, and in 1892-93 was a member of the Indiana legislature, a position he filled with great credit to himslef in the watchf ul care of the inerests of his constituents.

The early education of Joseph C. Schaf was obtained in Cincinnati, where he made commedable proficiency in his studies and prepared himself for the active duties of life, in the performance of which he has been eminently successful , as is shown by the fact that he is now president of the American Brewing company. whose large and sightly establishment in located on West Ohio street, Indianapolis, occupying a frontage on that street from Nos. 175 to 197, both inclusive.

Mr. Schaf is a Democrat in his political affilitations and the priciples of the Democratic party have his unqualified support. In his buisness and social life, Mr. Schaf recognizes the value of associated effort, and is a member of the Commercial club, the Country club, the Lyra Casino, the German-American, Cleveland and Manufacturer's clubs, in all of which, as business relaxation permits he finds restf ul enjoyment.

In May, 1887, Mr. Schaf was married to Miss Josephine Maus, and their home has been brightened by the birth of two children, a daughter, Alice Louise, and a son Charles Joseph.

Mr. Schaf is a master of the brewing business and the establishment of which he is at the head gives satisfactory promise of a successful career in the brewing business of the city. As a brewer, he is known to be conscientious, and adhering to the motto that "honesty is the best policy," he supplies the patrions of his establishment with a beverage in which there is no taint of deception, as to its purity and healthf ulness, which in these degenerate days, when nearly everything is ad ulterated, is fruitf ul of convictions that Mr. Schaf is a business man whose high sense of honor entitles him to the confidence of the public.
