The Gugler Lithographic Company was founded by Henry Gugler, whose career began when he was commissioned to produce a large-scale engraving of the assassinated President Abraham Lincoln. He used the success of this image (it was later turned into a stamp) to start his own printing company in Milwaukee, which stayed in business under the Gugler family until 1956.
