Albert F. Schad
Albert Schad - a resident of Humboldt Park, a suburb of Chicago, was one of the pioneer cottagers of Lake Maxinkuckee.
BEAUTIFUL HOME TO BE BUILT NEAR HERE
Recent building activities at Zink's lake, about six miles northwest of Rochester, recently have excited the curiosity of the entire
neighborhood. Various investigations were made, but questioners could get but little satisfaction out of those who professed to
know, having every theory advanced agreed with in a most pleasant manner.
But now it has been definitely established that the land in question, about 18 acres, has been purchased by A. J. Shad, a Chicago
multi-millionaire, who is planning the erection of a palatial country home on the 18 acres.
At the present time, a part of the land is being cleared and there is now under course of construction a keeper's lodge and a barn,
which will cost in excess of $6,000. In clearing the land fully 2,500 pounds of dynamite have been used and a beautiful park with
modern landscape gardening will be the ultimate result.
In the rear center of the property, Mr. Shad plans to build his home at a cost of approximately $25,000, it is said, and plans for
the structure have already been completed and approved.
Mr. Shad, who is a resident of Humboldt Park, a suburb of Chicago, was one of the pioneer cottagers of Lake Maxinkuckee, but
now desires to get away from there because of crowded conditions. He selected the site at Zink's lake because of its utter
seclusion and privacy and the beautiful scenic efforts that can be obtained there. The home will not be built until next spring, it
was stated. - Rochester Sentinel, Monday, August 21, 1922
A. E. SCHAD DONATES TO FISH HATCHERY FUND
A. E. Schad, of Chicago, owner of the Forest Farm at Zinks Lake, has presented the Izaak Walton League of this city with a
snug sum of money to be used in the construction of the new fish hatcheries at the lake. Mr. Schad visited the new
hatcheries a few days ago and was so impressed with the work the League is doing that he donated to be
instrumental in the construction and maintenance of the hatchery. - The News-Sentinel, Thursday, October 3, 1929
ALBERT SCHAD BURIED IN CHICAGO WEDNESDAY
Funeral services were held in Chicago today for Albert E. SCHAD, aged 52, owner of a beautiful summer home at Zink's Lake
six miles northwest of this city who died in Chicago last Sunday [9 Mar 1930]. Little could be learned of Mr. Schad's life in this
city as during the time he spent here he confided in few people. He is survived by his mother, two brothers and a
sister. He was never married.
Mr. Schad had been ill for the past two years his sickness having resulted from an auto accident in which he figured at Chicago.
He was employed for many years by the Power's Regulator Company of Chicago and was reputed several times a millionaire.
Mr. Schad purchased the ZINK'S LAKE farm five years ago and started to develop it. It was Mr. Schad's hobby. It is estimated
that he spent between $50,000 and $60,000 in the development so far and he had planned to spend many more thousands
before he had his dream completed.
It is not known as to whether his mother and sister will carry on the project which had reached a point of development where it
was considered one of the show places of Northern Indiana. - The News-Sentinel, Wednesday, March 19, 1930
