In 1926 the family moved to Estherville, Iowa. During the years he has been here he has been an invalid. Yet ill though he was he ever wished to do his part. Active in the Farm Bureau Department and spending a part of his time on the road as a salesman. After his fatherís death he has also been the administrator of the family estate.
