Daniel Guggenheim was an American industrialist and philanthropist, and a son of Meyer Guggenheim. He expanded his father's mining empire into Alaska. He was a member of the National Security League, the driving force for moving the then-neutral USA into World War I. When his son, Harry, became an aviator, he developed a lasting interest in aviation; in the 1920s they established the Daniel Guggenheim Medal for achievement in aeronautics and provided grants for aeronautics research at leading U.S. universities.
Cottage Six was subsequently owned by Alfred Cook.
