He was graduated from the high school at Manson, that state, took an academic course at Cornell College at Mt. Vernon, Iowa, and was subsequently graduated from Tobin College at Ft. Dodge, Iowa. In 1897 he took a position with the Calhoun County Bank of Manson, and after remaining there some five or six years, in 1903 became cashier of the First National Bank of Buffalo Center, Iowa. The latter position he resigned in 1904 to take the cashiership of the newly organized German American Bank of Merrill, Wis., which he has since filled to the satisfaction of the directors and the bank's patrons.
