Having come to Rhinelander at the age of ten years, he was educated for the most part in this city and was graduated from the high school with the class of 1898. After that he taught school for two years, and was for two years subsequently in the employ of the Wisconsin Bell Telephone Co. He then returned to Rhinelander and entered the city mail service, being one of the three carriers first appointed. After carrying mail for 11 years, he entered the post office as clerk and gradually rose in position until he was appointed to his present position of assistant postmaster on May 16, 1920.
