Oscar Rudolph Lange was born on May 11, 1876, in Greenwood, Wisconsin. His parents moved to Medford where he attended the grade and high schools. At the age of 16, he began learning the barber trade, and later opened a shop in Rib Lake, which he conducted for six years. In 1901 he came to Marshfield. He established a shop in the basement of the Thiel building, Central Avenue and Third Streets, then known as the Rembs and Sturm Building. He continued in this business until nine years ago when he and William Baer, entered into a partnership to conduct an undertaking establishment and furniture store, in which business they are still engaged.
