Term: Tittemore, James Nelson 1864 - 1949
Definition: railroad man, farmer, politician, b. Waushara County. At fifteen he became a telegrapher for the Milwaukee, Lake Shore and Western R.R., and was thereafter connected with various railroads for 30 years. At the time of his retirement in 1910, he was vice-president of the Pere Marquette R.R. After retiring, he moved to Omro where he engaged in large-scale farming. He was president of the Wisconsin Society of Equity (1918-1920) and the American Society of Equity (1919). A Republican, he was twice a candidate for the gubernatorial nomination (1918, 1920). In 1918 he was supported by the Farmers' Progressive League and also had the backing of the La Follette Progressives, who hoped thereby to defeat Roy P. Wilcox (q.v.) of Eau Claire. He was a candidate for the Republican nomination for U.S. Senator (1926), and in 1928 was instrumental in organizing Hoover's presidential campaign in Wisconsin. From 1930 to 1934 he served as U.S. marshal for the eastern district of Wisconsin, and after 1934 retired from active political and business life. Milwaukee Journal, Sept. 20, 1949; W. A.
