Volunteers. Prank M. was but eleven years of age when he lost his father and mother, their deaths occurring in

he learned the trade of custom tailoring. He remained at this work for only two years, however, and then secured
employment with Shreve, Crumb & Lowe, in charge of their combination fixture work. Two years passed in this
manner, and he then spent a year in charge of a department for the Eastman Kodak Company at Boston, Massachusetts,
Following this Mr. Hutchins was four years in the Massachusetts Secret Service Department. His next connection
was with the E. B. Hall Publishing Company, of Boston, where he remained eleven years. During this time he made
much progress and was successively made sales manager, district manager and manager in charge of the New York office.
Severing his connection with that company, he next accepted the position as New England manager for the Sperry
Hutchinson Stamp Company. Later the United States Steel Company employed him as manager for Southern New York,
which connection he gave up to do war service.
Mr. Hutchins was connected with the United States Sub Treasury for the war period, in charge of District Four as
publicity manager, and had under his supervision nine counties and 228 towns and cities in Central and Southern

engaged in the investment brokerage business.
