Plowman, Arthur J. (28 October 1872 - 19??)



ARTHUR J. PLOWMAN was born in Waupaca County October 28, 1872; reared on a farm and is a graduate of the high school of the city of Waupaca. He came to the town of Eldron, Marathon County, in 1897, and has since resided there, farming, cattle raising and logging. He has been very active in promoting the rise of that section of the country from a pinery slashing to a flourishing farmer settlement. His work in that respect is highly appreciated by the people of that community, as is shown by his election for thirteen consecutive years as school district clerk, and four years chairman of the town. He owns a herd of as fine Guernsey cows as any in the state, and is treasurer of the Marathon County Breeders Association. He is president of the Eland State Bank, president of the Eldron Light & Power Company, president and treasurer of the Eldron Telephone Company, and treasurer of the Eldron Cooperative Creamery Company. He was chairman of the county board in 1910. His general information as to the needs of the newly settled parts of the state, and his sound views on state affairs gave him a prominent place in the assembly and recommended him so much to the voters of the eighth congressional district that they have given him without any effort on his part, the Democratic nomination for member of congress in 1912, which district includes Marathon County, Shawano County, Wood County, Portage County, Waupaca County and Washara County. Mr. Plowman is a man of striking personality and well informed on any of the subjects which now attract public attention.
