Developing an unusual mathematical talent he decided to study civil engineering and became a student in the Ohio Northern University at Ada, O., where he was graduated in 1909. He immediately was appointed deputy county surveyor, and the experience gained in that,capacity prepared him for the office he now fills so well, to which he was elected in 1912, on the Democratic ticket.
