Haskell, D.D.S., George W. one of the leading dentists of Oneida County, was born at New London, Wis., March 18, 1881, son of Dr. George W. and Sally (LUTSEY) HASKELL. The father was born in New York State and came west just after the Civil War, locating in Waupaca County, where he practiced dentistry for over 35 years. During the early period of his practice there he had sub-offices in Shawano, Clintonville, and Rhinelander. He died Aug. 17, 1901; the mother still makes her home at New London. Three children were born to these parents: George W., subject of this sketch; Bert, now assistant postmaster at New London; and Edward, who is deceased. George W. HASKELL attended school at New London, graduating from the high school there with the class of 1898. He then entered Marquette University at Milwaukee and was awarded the degree of D.D.S. from this institution with the class of 1902, after which he opened offices in Iron River, Wis., and practiced there for nearly two years. He came to Minocqua in 1903 and has since enjoyed a thriving business here, having offices in the Bolger block. His skill and careful work have gained him a wide reputation and his practice is steadily growing. Dr. HASKELL was married at Minocqua, May 29, 1901, to Miss Pearl HARVEY, daughter of John J. and Grace (CADY) HARVEY, who were pioneer residents of Merrill, Wis. The home circle of Dr. and Mrs. HASKELL was broadened and brightened by the birth of a child, Doris, on June 24, 1914. The family attend the Methodist Church and Mrs. HASKELL is a member of the Ladies' Aid Society.
