Northwood City Treasur­er, T. Sophus Hanson was born in Northwood, Iowa, on the 21st day of April 1878. His parents, H. J. and Anna (Gunderson) Hanson, still reside in Northwood. His only sister, Mrs. C. H. Madson is also a resident of this city.

In June 1895, Mr. Hanson graduated from the Northwood High School and soon after was elected assistant cashier of the Bank of Manly, entering upon the discharge of his duties November 1st, 1895. This position he held for exactly two years. Nov. 1st, 1897, he entered the employ of Strauss & Gunderson, then engaged in the clothing and shoe trade in Northwood. Nov. 1, 1898, he was elected teller of the Worth County State Bank. Later he was promoted to the position of assistant cashier and on Nov. 1, 1905, he became cashier of this institution, a position which he still holds. In March 1900 he was elected city treasurer of Northwood, being re-elected in 1902, 1904 and 1906.

On June 11.1901. he was married to Miss Rose Savre, daughter of Mr. E. E. Savre of Northwood. To this union two sons have been born, Vernard, aged five and Maurice, aged three. Both in his public and private dealing Mr. Hanson is unusually competent and obliging. Northwood has reared many splendid young men who have gone forth to do honor to their native city. But among them all there are none of whose achievements our people are more justly proud than those of T. Sophus Hanson.
