The Schroedle Dairy was my grandfather's dairy. The actual address was 2923 S. Normal and was established in 1915. My grandfathers name was Peter Schroedle. How are you related? My grandfather was also named Richard Schroedle. I remember him refer to his brother Jake. Grampa didn't live near Crane Company, here worked there. He lived at 29th and Canal St. This was around the block from where I understand the dairy was on Normal Ave. My dad is Lawrence Schroedle. He remembers the barn being there. Do you know if they actually kept cows there or was this some type of distribution point for the milk? Did your dad drive a team of horses or did they have trucks? I've made contact w/Bill Schroedle on this topic and he says that the dairy started in 1915.
Don't know who you are, or if you have a bottle from the dairy. If you have a bottle, I certainly would like to purchase it. If you are my cousin, give me a call. This dairy, of course, was run by my grandfather on 18th St. in Chicago. Please respond to 5LouHaase@yahoo.com. Remove the 5 from the address please. Lou
For some reason, I thought the family came from the Oak Park-River Forest area, and in googling, I found the following in the special collections of the Chicago Public Library: Bowman Dairy Reitzel, J. A. The Flourishing Tree: A History of the Bowman Dairy, 1874-1949. Chicago, 1949. Ravenswood-Lake View Community Collection, 5/12 SU HSTCOL
My grandfather, Edward Kaveny was the general manager of the Englewood branch of Bowman Dairy in the 1920s 1930s. My husband's great-grandfather, John Klasema, worked at Bowman Dairy in Chicago for 40+ years. He delivered milk with a horse drawn wagon, I've been told, on the Miracle Mile. My Great Grandfather, August Lundsteadt,was the safety manager at the dairy in Chicago for 40 years,and retired in 1955.
The Wieland Dairy and Ice Cream Factory, (in Chicago), was developed by my great grandparents, Jacob and Gottlieben (Gleich) Wieland. They came to the USA in 1889, bringing along their 7 sons,1 daughter, and Jacob's father. The Wieland Dairy was very successful, as was the Ice Cream Factory, where the "Good Humor" ice cream bar was developed. In the early 1930's the dairy was sold, for $8.5 million to "Borden", hence the name "Wieland/Borden Dairy" on all the bottles, for a period of time, (stipulated in the sale), later becoming just "Borden". The money was divided equally between the the sons and daughter. Two of the sons were against the sale, so they started CJ Wieland & Company Dairy. Not knowing whether this is a genealogy question or a question about the dairy itself, I welcome all to contact me. My father was eventuallya partner in the C.J Wieland Dairy and the chief chemist developing the formulas for the products. The Dairy was eventually sold to Hawthorn Melody in 1951. I would LOVE any photos anyone has of the dairy such as someone said they had. C.J. Wieland had an ice cream parlor and was regarded as the premium brand in Chicago. The aidry products were sold both in many markets and by home delivery.
