He initially worked in the railway industry, eventually becoming a passenger conductor for the North Western Railroad. He was active in the railway union, and in 1932 he became the first Democrat elected the 26th Lieutenant Governor of Wisconsin in nearly forty years. He served two terms, from 1933 until 1936, despite falling out of favor with his party during his first term.
