Excerpt from A Standard History of Champaign County, Illinois, Vol. 2: An Authentic Narrative of the Past, With Particular Attention to the Modern Era in the Commercial, Industrial, Civic and Social Development

After completing the curriculum of the graded schools and spending one year in high school, Louis Arthur Busch, then a lad of fifteen years, became identified with the furniture business, to which he had been given an introduction some years before in his father's store. He had lost his father by death when he was ten years of age, and he therefore had not enjoyed the privileges in an educational way which would have otherwise been his. However, he was desirous of obtaining a good education, having set his ambitions upon a professional career, and through his industry and continued effort managed, in 1905, to enter the University of Illinois, as a special student. For three years he took law and preparatory studies, and in 1908 duly completed his course and was graduated, whereupon he entered upon the practice of his profession at Champaign. Being earnest and industrious, he not only gained for himself a good clientele, but attracted to himself the attention of a number of representative men, who saw in him good official timber and eventually persuaded him to allow his name to be used as a candidate for the office of state's attorney. To this office he was duly elected December 2, 1912, and in the same position he has continued to serve to the present time. He has proven a most excellent official, his value to the community being enhanced by his com prehensive knowledge of his calling, his conscientious performance of his responsibilities and the fearless manner in which he attacks the duties of his office. Among his professional associates, Mr. Busch. Bears a good reputation as an adherent of the best ethics of the law, as a valuable fellow counsel and as a Worthy opponent.

On February 2, 1910, Mr. Busch was united in marriage in Shelby County, Illinois, with Miss Laura Wascher, who was born at Champaign, Illinois, August 5, 1886. Mr. And Mrs. Busch are the parents of two sons and one daughter, namely: Arthur, who was born November 1, 1912 Robert, born March 6, 1914; and Barbara, born December 24, 1915. Mr. And Mrs. Busch are members of the Lutheran Church, and Mr. Busch belongs to the church council and is active in its work. His political support is given to the candidates and policies of the Democratic party. During Governor Richard Yates' administration he was appointed law clerk of the House of Representatives for two terms. As a fraternalist he holds membership in the local lodges of the Masons, the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks and the Knights of Pythias.
