Fred W. Draper, who came to the town of Loyal with his parents 58 years ago, and who has made his home in Clark County most of the time since, was born July 22, 1868, in Dundee, Fond du Lac County, the son of Mr. and Mrs. Horace Draper. He acquired his education in the Loyal Public School and the Oshkosh Normal School, and followed the profession of teaching for a period of approximately 12 years in the various townships and villages in Clark County. In 1893 he took up farming, which he followed until 1900, when he was elected clerk of court and took up his residence in Neillsville. After serving acceptably in this capacity for ten years, he was elected to the state assembly, where he served one term, declining re-election. On his return from Madison he again gave his attention to farming on his father’s homestead, which he continued to operate until a few years ago, when he engaged in the lumber business, with a mill near Antigo. He has rented his farm.  

He was married in 1893 to Miss Amy Kayhart of Weston Township. They have one daughter, Bernice E., who teaches in a college in North Carolina. 

During the years he has been in Neillsville and Loyal, he has held many offices of trust, having been supervisor, director of the Citizen’s State Bank, and member of the school board. He retains the latter position at present. Fraternally, he is a member of the Masons and the Modern Woodmen. Politically, he is a Republican.
