Nolan, Larry present chairman of the Newbold town board, Oneida County, was born at Stevens Point, Wis., Sept. 1, 1875, son of Morris and Katherine (EGAN) NOLAN. The parents were both born in Ireland and came to America as children; they were married in Wisconsin and settled at Stevens Point, where the father was engaged in lumbering for many years. Coming to Oneida County in 1892, the family located at Rhinelander, where the father subsequently worked in the sawmills; he died in April, of 1914, having survived the wife and mother 11 years. Larry NOLAN was educated in the schools of Stevens Point and came from that city to Rhinelander in 1902. He has ever since been associated with the lumber industry here; for the first 15 years he was in the mills, and at present, in addition to his other interests, he is connected with the Collins Lumber Co., hiring all the men for work in their various logging camps each winter. In 1903 he took a homestead of 130 acres on the banks of the Wisconsin River, in Section 15, town of Newbold, and on this he built a summer home for himself and also erected cottages which he rents to summer tourists. The buildings and grounds are very prettily located, and "Neverest Resort," as the place is called, is an ideal place for a summer's outing. Mr. NOLAN also deals extensively in lake and river frontage and farm lands, and has been very successful in the real estate business. He has always stood ready to help his community in every possible way, a willingness which, in view of his ability and qualities of leadership, has been extremely useful in advancing the general interest of this locality. He served as town assessor for 11 years, and he has filled his present office as chairman of the town board of supervisors for the past five years; by virtue of the latter office he is a member of the county board, and some evidence of his standing among the members of this body is given by the fact that he is a member of the county road and bridge committee, one of the most important committees of the board. Mr. NOLAN is a member of the Catholic Church and of the Knights of Columbus.
