Curran, at the age of four years, lost his right arm in a railroad accident. He was educated in the public schools and was engaged in the railroad business. In 1880 he was appointed station agent at Hebronville, which position he still holds. In 1889 Mr. Curran married Mary Cavanaugh, and they have two children: George D. and Mary E. Mr. Curran was appointed postmaster in 1895; truant officer; secretary of American Legion of Honor; the Red Men; member of Co. C., of Attleborough, and through his influence a kindergarten has been added to the public schools. He was elected a member of the Attleborough Republican town committee for the year 1899. He has been a delegate of his party both in district and State conventions and in October, 1898, was appointed one of the seven members of the Republican district committee of Bristol county for the term of three years. The Attleborough Daily Sun, under date of March 23, 1898, has this to say of Mr. Curran, among other things: He cast his first vote in the town of Attleborough, and ever since that time has taken a deep interest in public affairs. He takes to politics as naturally as a duck takes to water. Possessed of a superabundance of good humor, even his political opponents are always glad to greet him. Mr. Curran in politics is vigorous and aggressive and infuses much enthusiasm into whatever cause he espouses. He is a wide awake, public spirited, progressive man, fully alive to the interests of his section of the town."
