Shank, Rev. Arthur F. pastor of St. Peter's Catholic Church at Eagle River, was born at Appleton, Wis., May 9, 1896, son of John and Anna (KNEISEL) SHANK. The parents are natives of Wisconsin and have been residents of Milwaukee since 1899; four children were born to them, as follows: Joseph, now professor in Regis College at Denver,Colo.; Marie, who was Mrs. MCCORMACK and is now deceased; Arthur F., subject of this sketch; and Raymond, now of Milwaukee. Arthur F. SHANK came to Milwaukee with his parents when three years old, and was educated in the parochial schools there, for five years at St. Lawrence College, for two years at St. Bonaventure's College in Detroit, Mich., and then at St. Francis Seminary in St. Francis, Wis., and St. John's University at Collegeville, Minn. He was ordained June 12, 1921, and his first charge was St. Anthony's Church at Park Falls, Wis. He was installed in the church at Eagle River Oct. 22, 1922, and is well liked by the members of the parish and by all who know him. He has outside charges at Phelps, Conover, State Line, Monico, and Pelican Lake, and is doing a great and useful work throughout all this territory.
