They next moved on 1 January 1904 (age 2) to Waterloo, Iowa, where his brother Leonard was born on 28 April 1905. On 1 July 1905 (age 4) he moved with his family to Oelwein, Iowa where they lived until late March 1909. His father commuted from Waterloo to Oelwein from 1 May to 1 July 1905. His brother Arnold was born on 29 May 1907 in Oelwein. In late March 1909 (age 7) he moved with his family to 602 S. College Avenue, Aledo, Illinois where they lived until 1 Sep 1919.

Both Maryville and Macalester colleges were affiliated with the Presbyterian Church, of which his father was a minister. He then transferred to the University of Michigan Law School for the 1924-25 school year, with the credits from Michigan allowing him to graduate with a Bachelor of Arts degree from Macalester College on 16 Jun 1926. After graduating from the University of Michigan Law School he joined the FBI for several years, then practiced with a Chicago law firm for several years, before returning to Aledo, Illinois in 1931 to open his law office.
