Shauck E. Barlow, and The Huber Company

Contributed by John F. Barlow

SHAUCK E. BARLOW, president and treasurer of The Huber Manufacturing Company, is one of Marion's self-made men. He was born in Ganges, Richland County, Ohio, February 01, 1861. and is a son of Rev. Chauncey L. and Martha (Jones) Barlow, the former a United Brethren minister. Besides the subject of this sketch there were three children, in the parental family, namely Elonson D. Barlow, deceased-, Lulu A., wife of A. N. Woodruff; and E.C.L. Barlow.

Mr. Barlow secured his early education in the common schools and graduated from the Cardington High School. Afterwards he attended Otterbein University at Westerville for one year and then spent one year in Fostoria Academy. From Fostoria he came to Marion in the summer of 1881 and entered the employ of The Huber Manufacturing Company as a painter. In the fall of the same year he entered the repair shipping department of the company and soon after became bookkeeper. So faithful and attentive was he in the discharge of his duties that when M. W. Haines resigned as treasurer of the company in August, 1883. Mr. Barlow was appointed by the board of directors to fill the unexpired term. In January following he was regularly elected a director and treasurer of the company, which position he has ever since held. Throughout this period of nearly 24 years, Mr. Barlow has had the immediate supervision of the finances of the company, and much of its remarkable growth and business success has been due to his ability and foresight. When Mr. Huber died in 1904, many thought that no one could be found who would successfully head the company. All agreed that a man of ability and experience was necessary to meet. the requirements of the position. Mr. Barlow possessed both and so he was regularly elected in January, 1905, to succeed Mr. Huber in the presidency of the company. He is now both president and treasurer of the company, Whose continued growth and prosperity stand as an evidence of his worth.

On September 8, 1888, Mr. Barlow was married to Elizabeth Harsh. of Fostoria, Ohio. They reside at their beautiful modern home on East Center street, Marion.
