Name, place and date of birth; parents; education; marriage and names of children; business history, showing dates, locations and type of employment or business endeavor; war record; clubs and organizations; politics; church affiliation; hobbies and present office and home address. Where an individual is still active in a capacity as listed, we have given the date when such affiliation began, followed by a hyphen, as "1932- cashier, State Bank"; or "1929- mayor." Where such activity has terminated, both dates are given, as "1932-38 cashier, State Bank", etc.
