McGregor, Delbert A. engaged in business with his father at Phelps, was born at Eagle River, this county, May 27, 1898, son of Thomas and Mary (SNYDER) MCGREGOR. He was educated in the schools of Eagle River and then entered the employ of D. C. MENEFEE of that place, for whom he worked for 18 months, learning the printer's trade. On July 3, 1917, he went to Milwaukee and enlisted in the navy, and after receiving his training there was assigned to postal duty on the U.S.S.R.S. Owing to a disability he was honorably discharged May 18, 1918, and returned to Eagle River. He waited only until he had recuperated sufficiently to permit him to pass the physical examination, however, before again enlisting, this time in the army. He was not destined to see foreign service, however, in spite of the earnestness of his purpose, for on the very day of his enlistment, Nov. 11, 1918, hostilities were brought to a close by the signing of the armistice, and he was again sent home. His record thus gives him an honorable discharge from both the army and navy. He went to Phelps in 1919 and has since been engaged here with his father in the confectionery business, his widespread popularity lending in no small measure to the success of the enterprise. Nov. 11, 1919, Mr. MCGREGOR was married at Wittenberg, Wis., to Pearl R. NELSON, daughter of Albert and Ann (PAULSON) NELSON, of Wittenberg. Mr. and Mrs. MCGREGOR have one child, Delbert A., Jr., who was born Sept. 28, 1922.
