Otto Paul Altstadt was born in Wiesenfeld, Hessen, Germany, in 1874. He was a railroad man before immigrating to the United States around 1903, with his wife, Henrietta, and three children.

Otto took a job as a clerk in New York City in order to support his family. The family later moved to the Chicago area.

Financially, the family did very well and Otto was able to buy out a drug store in Chicago. His sons, William Altstadt and Benjamin Altstadt, both pharmacists, ran the store.
