  ELMER E. NISWONGER is president of the Excelsior Laundry Company and identified with other important and remunerative business concerns of Dayton.  He was born in West Sonora, Preble county, Ohio, in 1861 and his youthful days to the age of nineteen years were there passed.  He completed his education by a course in an academy at Euphemia, Ohio, being graduated with the class of 1879 and in 1881 he came to Dayton as stenographer for the John Dodd Manufacturing Company.  For ten years he remained with that house, winning promotion from time to time but severed his connection to accept the position of corresponding clerk with the National Cash Register Company.  His capability and ready adaptability there won him advancement until he became secretary of the company and a member of the board of directors.  In 1901, however, he withdrew from that organization to enter business fields which he believed would prove still more remunerative, being elected to the presidency of the Excelsior Laundry Company.  He is also president of the Star Laundry Company of Columbus and president of the National Laundry Machinery Company of Dayton.  In the position of administrative direction he displays excellent executive force in the management and in the control of financial affairs.  His constantly expanding business powers, his unwearied industry and his close application have enabled him from the outset of his career to rise steadily, step by step to his present place of prominence and success.
     In 1888 in Darke county, Ohio, Mr. Niswonger was married to Miss Gertrude Burtch.  He belongs to the Masonic lodge, holds membership with the Garfield Club and is also a director of the Chamber of Commerce, these different associations making him widely known in Dayton.  He is also an active republican, believing the party platform adequate to meet the needs of the country in shaping legislation that has to do with the financial and trade interests of the country and its foreign policy.  He is an effective worker in the local ranks of the party and, as in other relations of life, commands the confidence and esteem of his political associates.
