Hungarian deputy; born at Uj-Pest June 18, 1864; educated at the gymnasium and at the school of technology at Budapest. After spending some time in his father's tannery in order to acquire a practical knowledge of the manufacture of leather, he undertook an extensive journey, visiting Germany, Egypt, Palestine, and Turkey.

Wolfner is an alderman of Uj-Pest, a member of the county council of Pesth, president of the national association of leather manufacturers, director of the technological industrial museum, and a member of the chamber of commerce and industry in Budapest. Since 1896 he has represented Gödöllö in the Hungarian Parliament, a fact which is the more noteworthy because of the circumstance that this district is the favorite residence of Francis Joseph I., and is under the influence of court officials. In 1904 Wolfner was the recipient of a rare honor, when the king appointed him a captain of hussars in the reserves and elevated him to the Hungarian nobility.
