R. L. Sabin, president and manager of the Queen City Laundry of Hastings, has conducted his present business since 1903 and intelligently directed effort is bringing to him growing success. He is one of Nebraska's native sons, his birth having occurred in Beatrice on the 17th of November, 1878, a son of R. W. and Emma L. Sabin. The father is an attorney and in 1870 came with the family to Nebraska, where he won distinction as a member of the bar. He served as city attorney, as county attorney and for some years filled the office of district attorney. Both he and his wife are still living and he yet remains active in professional circles.

R. L. Sabin completed his public school education by graduation from the high school of Beatrice, Nebraska, after which he entered the State University and pursued the electrical engineering course. He was thus well qualified by liberal education for life's practical and responsible duties. He then became connected with F. J. Kimball & Co. in the laundry business and began operating this plant, of which he had charge for four years. On the 27th of March, 1903, he purchased the business, which he reorganized. He was also at one time the owner of a half interest in Shipley's Laundry at Sioux Falls, South Dakota, and operated that plant. He is likewise proprietor of the laundry business at Grand Island conducted under the name of the Model Laundry Company. At his Hastings plant he employs thirty people and utilizes two automobiles in the collection and delivery of laundry. He employs the latest improved processes, uses the best machinery and maintains the highest standard of excellence in the work. These points, added to his thoroughly reliable business methods, have brought him a constantly increasing patronage and made the enterprise one of the profitable industrial concerns of the city.

On the 15th of December, 1906, Mr. Sabin was united in marriage to Miss Anna H. Speich, a daughter of Emanuel Speich, of Washington, D. C. They have one child, Hilbert Speich. Mr. Sabin holds the Protestant faith and in politics is a republican. Fraternally he is connected with the Benevolent Protective Order of Elks and he also belongs to the Commercial Club and to the State Laundry Association. He is fond of outdoor life and in that way takes his recreation, thus finding relief from onerous business cares which are constantly growing with the increase of his patronage. He is at all times alert, wide awake and enterprising, ready for any emergency and a dependable man under any circumstances and in every relation.
