Jacob Katzenellenbogan (pronounced kat-za-nehlen-bōgen) was a wealthy lumber magnate and the founder of Elwood City.
Though he founded the city, he was upset over the name, as he wanted the town to be named Elmwood City, not Elwood City. The monument dedicated to him spells his name with only one "l". Elwood City Katzenelenbogan Airport is also named after him.
"Katzenellenbogen" (note the spelling) is German for "cat's elbow". The word has no particular meaning.
