Forgotten Chicagoans: Albert Zangerle

There’s a lovely epigraph on the building at 1538 N. Halsted Street near Old Town that reads “Zangerle.”

Albert Zangerle was born October 15, 1873 in Tyrol, Austria. He arrived in the United States in the mid-1880s. He married his wife Theresia in 1900 and settled into this building soon after as a machinist. He was also a cabinetmaker, draftsman and stationary engineer at different points in his career. He also worked with his brothers Arthur and Joseph at Zangerle & Peterson, Co., a furniture company on Clybourn near Webster.

By 1918, they were gone from the location. He had 6 daughters and a son with Theresia. Albert died on August 11, 1942 and was buried at St. Boniface Cemetery.
