Norman Willett was born August 15, 1853, at Chambly, Canada East, and is a son of G. R. and Olinda C. (Kellogg) Willett. He removed to Decorah, Iowa, in the spring of 1857 with his parents, and has resided there since that time. He was educated at Iowa College, Grinnell. He read law in his fatherís office and was admitted to practice his profession at Decorah, Iowa, in 1876. He began the practice as a member of the firm of Willett, Wellington & Willett, which continued until 1877, when the firm became Willett & Willett. In 1885 our subject retired and went on the road, returning in the spring of 1894, when the firm of Willett & Willett was resumed, composed of father and son. His father died in December, 1898, since which time Norman Willett has been alone in general practice. A republican in politics, he served as county attorney of Winneshiek County from 1898 to 1904, with great credit to himself.
