Few of the younger business men of Louisville have made more steady and substantial business advancement than has Mr. Joseph J. Fischer. Mr. Fischer was born at Biebrich, Nassau Germany, December 6, 1842. In 1854 he came with his parents to Louisville, and almost immediately became an apprentice in the composing room of the Anzieger. As apprentice and compositor he remained in the Anzieger office for four years, when he began to study at Myer's Commercial College in Louisville.

In 1865 he was elected secretary of the German Insurance Company, then identical with the banking corporation, and, in December 1878, became one of its directors. All these offices he now holds. Mr. Fischer has always been prominent among his fellow Germans.
