In 1914 he became cashier of the First National Bank at Park Falls, Wis., and remained there until 1920, in which year he came to Tripoli to take his present position as cashier of the Tripoli State Bank, just then organized. He is a stockholder in this bank and in the First National Bank of Park Falls, and has proved himself a capable financier and popular bank official. He has also at different times rendered public service in governmental affairs, having formerly been city clerk of Park Falls and later of Tripoli. He owns a good home at Park Falls, together with other valuable property.
