(IX) William Walker Johnson, son of George
Washington Johnson (8), was born in Shrewsbury,
Massachusetts, July 25, 1847. At the age of six
he removed with his parents to Worcester, where
they lived for two years. He attended the public
schools. At the end of that time the family
removed to Holden, where he also attended
the public schools until he was seventeen. He then
went to Westboro and remained for a year in the
employ of Trowbridge & Weatherby, tailors. From
there he went to work for A. P. Ware & Co., of
Worcester, clothiers and tailors, in whose employ
he continued until he was admitted to the firm
in 1871.

The record of the Ware-Pratt Company, of which
for many years Mr. Johnson has been the president,
begins in 1847, with A. P. Ware & Co., the pioneers
in the ready-made clothing business of the city. In
January, 1866, a branch firm under the name of
Ware & Pratt was formed under the management
of Henry S. Pratt, the junior partner and the present
treasurer of the Ware-Pratt Company. At the end
of three years the two firms, which had been located
in the old Paine block, consolidated and moved to
the First National Bank building on Main street.
The firm then began the manufacture of clothing
for the retail trade on a much larger scale than
before. In 1871 Mr. Ware retired from business
and a new firm was formed under the same name,
consisting of Henry S. Pratt, Edward T. Wardwell
and William W. Johnson. The business continued
for seven years, when Mr. Johnson sold his 'interest
to his partners. Two years later, Mr. Wardwell
died and Mr. Johnson again entered the firm, and
the business of the concern grew rapidly. Mr. Pratt
and Mr. Johnson carried on the business as part-
ners until the business was incorporated January
23, 1888, under the present name, the Ware-Pratt
Company, with Mr. Johnson, president; Mr. Pratt,
treasurer; and Charles E. Black, secretary. A part
of the capital stock was also apportioned among
the faithful salesmen and employees of the house.
The firm manufactures the greater part of the goods
sold over its counters and does a large custom busi-
ness. The firm, finding its quarters in the First
National Bank building inadequate, moved to the
