Lynn Claire Catlin, son of Mr. and Mrs. William Catlin, Loyal, was born in Loyal on August 1, 1897. He attended the public school in that village, and the Wisconsin Business College in La Crosse. Upon finishing his educational training he learned the cheese makers trade. Next he worked in the Louis Laemle Store in this city. On April 17, 1917, he joined Company A, 127th Infantry, Wisconsin National Guard, of this city, to serve his country in the World War. He served a period of two years and three months, half of which time was spent in Winchester and Liverpool, England, in the army mail service. His dispatch to England came about through quarantine regulations that prevented a number of men from sailing for France with the contingents to which they were attached, when they arrived at Camp Merrit, New Jersey. Returning home from England, he resumed work as a cheese maker at Loyal. Six months later he came to this city. Most of the time since living here he has been serving as the local representative of the Metropolitan Life Insurance Company. 

Mr. Catlin was married to Miss Manila Knickel, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Philip Knickel, by the Reverend F. Halsey Ambrose, of the Marshfield Presbyterian Church, February 15, 1920. Mr. and Mrs. Catlin are the parents of two children, Eunice 7 and Betty Jane 4. 

Fraternally, he is affiliated with Marshfield Lodge No. 224, Free and Accepted Masons, the American Legion and the Elks. Politically, he is a progressive Republican. His hobbies are motoring and fishing.
