Peterson, Ernest V.

Ernest V. Peterson, the vice president of the Peerless Manufacturing Company, was born in Sweden, March 2, 1885, but has been a resident of Meriden since 1905, arriving in this city when a young man of twenty years. He learned the machinist's trade in his native country and after coming to the United States entered the employ of the New England Westinghouse Company, while subsequently he was employed by the M. B. Schenck Company. On the expiration of that period he became connected with the Peerless Manufacturing Company as its vice president and is now concentrating his efforts and attention upon the further upbuilding of the business.

The three officers are enterprising young men, actuated by a spirit of progress in all that they do, and their efforts are bringing very gratifying results.

On the 3d of July, 1907, Mr. Peterson was married to Miss Alice Jackson and they have become the parents of three children: Eveline, Edith and Frederick. Mr. Peterson is identified with the Independent Order of Odd Fellows. He casts his ballot without regard to party ties, considering the capability of the candidate rather than his party affiliation. He has already made for himself a creditable place in business circles and as the years go by is steadily progressing.
