Conrad W. Paulus is prominent in the financial circles of Pilot Rock as cashier of the First Bank of Pilot Rock.
He is a native of Mason City, Iowa, born November 1, 1895, a son of Conrad and Elizabeth (Bracher) Paulus.
Conrad W. Paulus received his education in Mason City and in due time he entered Wartburg College at Clinton, Iowa,
from which he was graduated, completing his courses in the required time. In 1915 he engaged in the real estate
business for a short time and then entered the Farmers Exchange Bank. In 1917 he came west and settled in Portland,
but removed from that city on the 1st of January, 1918, and went to Pilot Rock, where he accepted a position as
assistant cashier in the Pilot Rock Bank. He soon demonstrated his ability in this line of business and on the
1st of January, 1920, was promoted to the position of cashier. The bank which he is now serving was organized in
1905 by Douglas Belts with G. G. Schlegel as first president. Louis C. Scharpf is now the president and has been
holding the position since 1920. In the position which Mr. Paulus now occupies he is constantly dealing with the
public and by his kindness and exceeding good nature he has won the confidence and goodwill of all with whom he
comes into contact.
Mr. Paulus gives his political allegiance to the republican party and is well known in fraternal circles as a member
of the Masons and Elks.
