Broulette, Albert a well known and respected citizen of Rhinelander, where he is engaged in the business of house decoration, was born in Fremont, Waupaca County, wis., June 8, 1878, son of Mose and Susan (MARKS) BROULETTE. The parents came to Rhinelander in 1888, Mose BROULETTE building the first house of amusement here (now the Labor Temple), which was used both for theatrical shows and dances, or for any entertainment for which it might be desired. After conducting it until 1902 Mr. BROULETTE sold it to W. H. GILLIGAN, Sr., and engaged in the real estate business. He died May 8, 1920, having been a widower over 14 years, his wife having died Dec. 14, 1905. They were the parents of seven children: George C., now in Minneapolis; Frank O. of Maple Plain, Minn.; Mary, now deceased, who married Robert E. WARNER; Albert, of Rhinelander; Grace, now Mr. A. H. MUNGER of Wausau, Wis.; Clayton, of Minneapolis; and Gertrude, who is now Mrs. William MCCABE. Albert BROULETTE was about ten years old when he came with his parents to Rhinelander. It was a pretty small place in those days, but he has seen it grow and has grown with it. He was educated in the public school and after relinquishing his formal studies, started in to learn the trade of paper-hanger, painter and decorator, in which in time he became an expert, and which he has followed with great success. He handles only the best lines of wall paper, aims always for the finest artistic effect, and has built up an enviable reputation. His beautiful home at 332 Lincoln Street occupies one of the finest sites in the city, commanding a fine extensive view, and its interior decoration is a favorable example of his own handiwork. Mr. BROULETTE is a member of the Independent Order of Foresters, the Knights of Pythias, and Rhinelander Lodge No. 598, B.P.O.E. He and his family are affiliated with the Congregational Church. Mr. BROULETTE'S marriage occurred June 6, 1900, when he was united with Emma KLUGE, of Portage County, Wis. They have an adopted daughter, Mildred.
