Toburen, Gustav (19 February 1887 – 19??)
GUSTAV TOBUREN, who, for the past seven years has conducted a photographic business at Wausau, his studio being situated at No. 408 Jackson Street, which stand he has occupied since October, 1911, was born at Greenwood, Clark County, Wis., February 19, 1887, and is a son of William and Minnie Toburen.
Gustav Toburen was educated in the Greenwood schools and afterward worked as a farmer until he came to Wausau and embarked in the line of business for which his natural bent best fitted him. He was associated with Carl Lemke, the well known photographer, from that time until he opened his own studio, which is well patronized, Mr. Toburen's artistic taste and mechanical skill being very generally recognized.
In May, 1908, Mr. Toburen was married to Miss Annie Manske, who was born in Germany but was reared at Wausau. She is a daughter of Herman and Lena Manske, the former of whom died in 1908, but the latter survives. Mr. and Mrs. Toburen have one son, Clarence, who was born March 1, 1909. Mr. Toburen has his studio in his residence, having equipped the same with modern appointments of suitable nature for photographic work. He and wife are members of the German Reformed Church, and he belongs to the fraternal organization known as the Yeomen.
