Clarence Dolan, 63, Abbotsford postmaster, will retire June 30 after 32 years of service with the postal department in the capacity of postmaster.
He was appointed postmaster on May 29, 1940, by President Roosevelt.
The post office has moved twice during this time. First moving from the building located next to the Security State Bank branch office to the building located next to the Hutman Heating building, the post office then moved to its present site in 1962.
According to Dolan, the post office volume has doubled since the earlier days and the rural route has increased from 30 miles to 68 miles.
The son of a railroad man, Dolan was born in Odanah, Wis., and as a young boy, lived in Abbotsford, Stevens Point and Park Falls. The family returned to Abbotsford in 1917 and Dolan has lived here since.
Note: Clarence T. Dolan is interred at Abbotsford Public Cemetery.
