Obituary: Harold Lampert - Class of 1909

"Harold Lampert Dies at Age 84"

Harold Lampert, 84, of 3209 Stevens St., died Wednesday (Jan. 24, 1973) in a hospital after a long illness.

He was born in Oshkosh and lived in Madison for most of his life. He married the former Beatrice Walker in 1924.

Mr. Lampert was a 1913 graduate of the University of Wisconsin, and a World War I veteran, a member of the first Congregational Church, the Masonic Lodge, the Zor Temple, the Kiwanis Club, the Maple Bluff Country Club, the Madison Clut, the Elks Club, and the American Legion.

He was also a former president of the Elks National Bowling Assc.

Mr. Lampert was a chemist for the former Fauerbach Brewing Co., a co-partner in the Dr. Pepper Bottling Co., and a former state chemist.

Surviving are his wife; a son, Harold Jr., Tuscaloosa, Ala.; a daughter, Mrs. William Fenster, St. Paul Park, Minn.; and six grandchildren.

The funeral is tentatively planned for 3 p.m. Saturday in the Frautschi Funeral Home, 3610 Speedway Rd., where friends may call after 2 p.m. Saturday.

Note: The above was originally published in the Obituary Section of the Wisconsin State Journal on January 25, 1973. At this time, obituaries were still "news stories," written by newspaper staff, not families.

Additional notes: The obituary is reproduced as it was originally published. It probably contains at least one typographical error: "Madison Clut" should probably be Madison Club. Harold Lambert's senior class photograph appears in the 1909 edition of the Tychoberahn, the yearbook of Madison High School (later renamed Central High School).
