Anderle, Fred, a retired druggist and esteemed citizen of Rhinelander, Oneida County, was born at New Lisbon, Wis., Jan 14, 1867, son of Ignatz and Agatha (MATZKE) ANDERLE. The early home of the family was in Austria and from that country the parents came to America in 1863. One year later they located at New Lisbon, Wis., where for many years subsequently the father, Ignatz ANDERLE, followed his trade of tailor. He died Jan. 31, 1910, and was survived by his wife, who passed away on June 30, 1922. Fred ANDERLE was educated in the public schools of New Lisbon, and began industrial life at Wonewoc, Wis., where he was clerk for a year in a dry goods store. He then went to Merrill where he was engaged one year in mill work. Jan. 1, 1890 he with F. L. HINMAN bought the drug business of Charles BARNES, which they conducted together until June 1, 1906. Mr. ANDERLE then sold his interests in the store to Mr. HINMAN and gave his whole attending to his other business affairs, as at that time he owned certain lands and city property. During recent years he has disposed of his lands except the city property, which he still owns. He has his home in a splendid residence at No. 204 S. Oneida Avenue. He has always taken a close personal interest in civic improvement and the general welfare of the community, which he has helped to advance whenever he could. His public spirit has been appreicated by his fellow citizens and he was six times elected mayor of the city, serving eleven years in all. He also served for three years as alderman from the Fourth Ward, and four years as health officer. He is a stockholder in the Rhinelander Paper Co., the Rhinelander Telephone Co. and the Oneida National Bank. His fraternal affiliations are with the Modern Woodmen, the Eagles and the Elks, while he and his family attend the Congregational Church. In 1923 he was elected president of the Chamber of Commerce. On Sept. 21, 1903 Mr. ANDERLE was united in marriage in Rhinelander with Evelyn FOSTER, of this city. Their family circle has since been enlarged and brightened by the birth of three children: Helen A., born June 21, 1905; Joseph F., Nov. 25, 1910, and Mary S., May 28, 1908. Some of the brightness went out when little Mary passed to the better land on March 25, 1909. Helen ANDERLE was graduated from the Rhinelander High School in the class 1923 and is now a student at Downer College, Milwaukee. Joseph is a student in the public schools of Rhinelander.
