Fred W. Anheuser, city prosecutor of Omaha, and one of Omaha's most prominent young attorneys, was born at St. Augustine, Florida, April 16, 1884, and is a son of Julius and Ellen (McCotter) Anheuser, the former a native of Germany and the latter a native of South Carolina, representing an old South Carolina family of Scotch-Irish descent.

Fred W. Anheuser was educated in the public and high schools of St. Augustine, Florida, from which he graduated in 1898, and in the Franklin University of Baltimore, Maryland, also the University of Maryland and Creighton University of Omaha, in which he pursued his last year's work in preparation for the bar. He was admitted to practice in June, 1905, at which time he was the youngest attorney in the United States, being barely twenty-one years of age. He at once enteed upon the active work of the profession, which he has since continued, with increasing success. He has given his attention to general practice and is accorded a liberal clientage. In June, 1916, Mr. Anheuser was appointed city prosecutor of Omaha by Mayor Dahlman and is now serving his second term in that capacity.

On the 30th of June, 1914, in Omaha, Nebraska, Mr. Anheuser was united in marriage to Miss Kathryn Van Lome, a native of Butler county, Nebraska, and a daughter of the late Andrew and Margaret (Wolf) Van Lome, who were among the earliest settlers of Nebraska. Mr. and Mrs. Anheuser are well known in Omaha, where he has lived since his student days, and in the practice of his profession his advancement has been continuous. He chose as a life work a calling in which progress depends entirely upon individual effort and merit and he has now gained a creditable place as an able lawyer.
