PHILIP STADLER, who is engaged in cigar manufacturing at Wausau, with factory and residence at No. 720 Washington Street, Wausau, has been engaged in this business here for the past thirty years and is the oldest dealer and manufacturer in his line, in point of time, in the city. He was born in Germany. November 2, 1861, and is a son of Jacob and Margaret (Rueck) Stadler.
Philip Stadler was reared in Germany and remained there until 1878 and then came to America, his father following two years later. With his father he had learned the baking business and when he reached Milwaukee, Wis., found work at that trade and remained there until 1880, when he came to Wausau, where he worked on the railroad for a short time and then entered the employ of the Curtis Bros. Co., now Curtis & Yale. He continued there for almost two years and then returned to railroading, ten days later being severely injured. Thus the current of his life was changed and in seeking satisfactory employment he fortunately decided upon cigar manufacturing in which he has prospered.
His brand, the San Meteo, is a favorite ten cent cigar and he also manufactures a line of excellent five cent goods.
In 1906 Mr. Stadler was married to Miss Beyrl Black and they have one son, Lloyd Stadler. Mr. Stadler belongs to the Eagles and the U. C. T. He has done much for Wausau in the way of outside sports, was the first one to introduce professional baseball here and for two years was manager of the Wausau Baseball Club, of which he is yet a director.
