DiedSeptember 16, 1953
Mitchell, South Dakota

Charles Weller (1878-1953), a rubber props specialist, is best known for his Weller Egg.[1]


He was a member of the South Dakota State legislature in 1915 and was with the state Department of Agriculture for six years.

Weller's widow, Sadie Weller, carried on the business until her retirement at age ninety. It was then taken over by Charles Weller's grand daughter, Corinne Weller Ragle and great-grandson Richard L. Ragle in 1971. The torch then passed in 1977 to Wes Strong who continued to produce the Weller products until his death.[2]
