Madden, Daniel E. proprietor of Lake View Park Pavillion and Lunch Room at Minocqua, was born at Wausau, Wis., March 29, 1880, son of Patrick and Ann (MCGINLEY) MADDEN. The mother died when Daniel E. was born and the father subsequently married Ann LANGHRIN and came to Minocqua, where he engaged in the hotel business. After conducting his first hotel here for some time he established Kawaguesaga Summer Resort, one of the fine places of this kind on Lake Minocqua, which he operated until his death, Nov. 8, 1914. Two sons, Charles Raymond and William E., were born to his second marriage. Daniel E. MADDEN his mother having died as mentioned above, was brought up in the home of his uncle, James MADDEN, of Wausau, and attended school in that city. When he was 16 years old he came to Minocqua and clerked for his father in the hotel, working at timber scaling during the winter months. Upon the death of his stepmother, who had operated the Kawaguesage after the father's death, the property was inherited by Daniel E. and his two half-brothers, and they conducted it together until 1921, when the interests of William E. were purchased by the other two. In the fall of 1922 Daniel E. sold out to Raymond E. and bought his present resort property on the south side of Lake Kawaguesaga, in the Lake View Park Addition; here he has erected a fine dancing pavillion together with an up to date short-order restaurant and cafeteria, and is meeting with fine success. His pavillion is 40x60 feet, electrically lighted and modern in every way, and enjoys an excellent patronage. Mr. MADDEN was married Oct. 11, 1911, to Frances COLLINSKI of Edgar, Wis., and five children have been born to Mr. and Mrs. MADDEN: Catherine Ann, Patrick Charles, James Daniel, Grace Elizabeth, and Helen Frances. The family are members of the Catholic Church and are highly respected and valued members of the community.
