KELLER ELECTRIC COMPANY. The Keller Electric Company was started by C. H. Keller in 1910. It relocated to 1135 Main in 1925. Keller was educated in the technical schools of the General Electric Company in Schenectady, New York and worked for that company for several years in New York and Cleveland before coming to Dubuque.

He worked first with the DUBUQUE ELECTRIC COMPANY and then went into business for himself. (1)

The 1915 Dubuque City Directory through the 1923 Dubuque City Directory gave this business address as 1081 Main.

The 1929 Dubuque City Directory listed 1135 Main for this electrical contractor.
