    Notes 
    • Harold graduated from Wilton (Maine) Academy in 1908. He taught school for several terms before entering Bates College. He left Bates in 1913 to teach in Round Pond, Maine. To supplement his income Harold worked for Ben Steere stoking boilers at the sawmill weekends and vacations. At the end of the school year Harold delivered Ben's team of horses back to Chepachet, Rhode Island. They went by boat and land. Raymond Steere accompanied him and it was quite an experience. It was in Chepachet that Harold met Esther Steere, Ben's neice.

      They were married at Ben and Urana Steere's home in Round Pond, Maine the next spring on April 27, 1914.

      In the summer of 1918, Harold taught in the Government School at Edgewood Arsenal, now known as Aberdeen Proving Grounds. This was his World War I service to his country.

      The following year Harold moved to Harmony, Maine to teach and it was there that their first child was born. Several years later we find Harold and Esther living in Rumford where he taught at the High School and coached basketball. It was there that their daughter was born in 1921. That same year Harold left public school teaching to teach Pulp and Paper making at Oxford Paper Company in Rumford.

      Beginning January 1926 we find the family in Appleton, Wisconsin where Harold had accepted a position as Coordinator of Vocational Education for the State of Wisconsin. This involved organizing vocational classes in towns and cities around the State. The work was challenging but meant many weeks away from home. It was while in Appleton that their third child was born.

      After nine long years Harold was offered the position of Personnel Manager at Oxford Paper Company in Rumford, so in 1934 the family returned to his beloved "God's Country" of Maine. He remained in this position until his retirement in 1949.

      Harold was a Democrat and served in many town capacities, one being the School Board. He served on the Draft Board during World War II. He was well loved by all who knew him and he loved his family. [Barbara (Noyes) Damauskas]
