"ALVIN NEFF. Included among the younger generation of businessmen of Evansville, who are taking advantage of the opportunities for advancement to be found in the business world of this city, and are thereby winning success and position, is Alvin Neff, vice president of the Schuler Implement Company. Mr. Neff was born in Posey County, Indiana, September 4, 1897, and is the son of Frank and Elizabeth (Wildeman) Neff. His paternal grandfather was born in Pennsylvania, whence he came to Vanderburgh County and here passed the remainder of his life in the pursuits of farming. Frank Nefff, the father of Alvin, was born in Vanderburgh County, but in young manhood went to Posey County, where he farmed for some years. He then moved to a farm near Armstrong, Indiana, where he tilled the soil for ten years, and finally, in 1919, came to Evansville, where he is now president of the Schuler Implement Company, of which he was one of the founders. He is sixty years of age and one of the strong and stable businessmen of the city, with a number of large interests and several important connections. Mrs. Neff, who also survives, was born in 1872 in Posey County. Alvin Neff attended the common schools of Vanderburgh County, following which he pursued a course at the Lockyear Business College, during 1915 and 1916. During 1917 and 1918 he was employed as a bookkeeper in Evansville business houses, and in 1919 he became one of the purchasers of the Schuler Implement Company. This venture has proven a very successful one, and Mr. Neff's activities have been factors in contributing to its growth and prosperity. The officers of the company are: Frank Neff, president; Alvin Neff, vice president; Joseph Hoefling, treasurer; and Benjamin Aman, secretary. Mr. Neff belongs to the Fraternal Order of Eagles. In politics, he is a Republican, and his religious connection is with St. Boniface Church. June 2, 1921, Mr. Neff married Marie, daughter of Joseph and Mary Fischer, of Mount Vernon, Indiana."
