People and Perspectives from Miles City's past

100 YEARS AGO (1914)

The saloon men, by a unan-
imous vote yesterday, agreed
to close their places of busi-
ness for two hours, from 2 to
4, during the funeral of the
late Professor Bach.

In the death of Professor
Louis Bach, Miles City loses
another of those persons of
strong individuality whose
speech, mannerisms, or meth-
ods serve to vary the hum-
drum of everyday life. Pro-
fessor Bach engaged in the
liquor and hotel businesses
ever since establishing him-
self in this community in the
very early days. His tastes
were for the 'classic' in music
and it was his knowledge of
this art that title of "Profes-
sor" was based. He is sur-
vived by a daughter.

He was obviously a well-loved character, based on the way the town reacted.

Professor Bach's Beer Hall and Lunch House is no more. The building was 131 years old.

Rumor has it, that like Schwarzenegger, the good professor will be Bach.
