Biography[edit]

Born in Lebanon, Ohio, Ittner moved to St. Louis, Missouri with his parents in 1844 where he attended common schools as a child. He learned the trade of bricklaying and later engaged in brick manufacturing. He was a member of the Enrolled Missouri Militia, was a member of the St. Louis City Council in 1867 and 1868 and was a member of the Missouri House of Representatives from 1868 to 1870. Ittner served in the Missouri Senate from 1870 to 1876 and was elected a Republican to the United States House of Representatives in 1876, serving from 1877 to 1879, declined to be a candidate for renomination in 1878. Afterward, he resumed work in brick manufacturing and was president of the National Association of Builders and of the National Brick Manufacturers' Association. Ittner retired from active business in 1917 and resided in St. Louis, Missouri until his death there on February 22, 1931. He was interred in Bellefontaine Cemetery in St. Louis.

A son, William B. Ittner became a noted architect.
