Brunswick, E. F. proprietor of the "Loon Lake Farm," which is a 200-acre tract in the town of Lincoln, Vilas County, and is the oldest developed farm in that county, was born at Ft. Atkinson, Jefferson County, Wis., July 28, 1886. He attended school at Ft. Atkinson and later at Milwaukee, and subsequently followed salesmanshp, clerical work, and the real estate business in Chicago until the fall of 1917. He then came to Vilas County and took possession of his present farm, which he had purchased some time previously. He has improved the buildings, before he settled on the land; he has also cleared and brought under cultivation an additional 45 acres of the farm, and he is now carrying on general farming and dairying with excellent success. Since 1920 he has operated a retail dairy route in Eagle River and the surrounding resort territory. Mr. BRUNSWICK'S farm almost completely encircles Loon Lake, and he has built several nice cottages on the lake front which he rents to tourists during the summer season; he also does considerable business in the rental of camping sites. He is one of the progressive citizens of the community and is very highly thought of throughout this locality. Mr. BRUNSWICK was married at Chicago April 24, 1912, to Miss Lillian SWANSON and Mr. and Mrs. BRUNSWICK have three children: Adele, born Aug. 26, 1918; William, born Feb. 1, 1920; and Carol, born Dec. 25, 1922.
