Nolan (Continued from Pupu Orvo) he is known to all, was born here Feb. 8, 1908, the second youngest of five children in the family. His mother is deceased and his father, Daniel, lives in Point Beach, Milford. He has two brothers, Edward, of Point Beach, and Michael, of Naugatuck, and two sisters. Mrs. Richard Whalen, of Naugatuck and Mrs,. Theresa Ryan, of Waterbury. Andrew Francis Nolan attended the public schools and Naugatuck High school. He worked for a short time in the Beacon Falls division of the U. S. Rubber Co. and in the composing room of the Naugatuck News as a "printer's devil." In 1929 he entered the employ of the Waterbury Farrel Foundry and Machine Co. as an apprentice machinist and has been with the concern ever since. He is now a member of the company's Veterans' Club, members of which have been with the company for 20 years or more. An Entertainer During his youth Andy participated in various productions with local theatrical groups and though he has long since retired, he will be remembered for his solo numbers i:. mintrel shows which played throughout the state. In July of 1937 he married the former Hazel Somers, of Naugatuck. They are the parents of four children, Andrew, 10; Kevin, 8; Bryan, 7; and Terrance, 3 1-2. Andy is a very ardent fisherman and spends a great amount of time during the season on rivers and streams in this area. He likes to fish small rather than large streams, feeling that the native trout found in the smaller, "cold" streams provide greater sport than the fish in larger, state-leased and stocked streams. He has found that fishing the smaller streams, usually overhung with brush and trees, leaves little room for maneuvering and has stuck to fishing with bait -ather than fishing with flies. Enters Union Affairs His first participation in union affairs came in 1943 when the Farrel Foundry became unionized. He was active in the organization of the Local and in 1944 was elected to the presidency. He has held that position ever since and is now serving his fifth term. The last time he was elected it was for a two- year term. Prior to that all terms were of one-year duration. Since the Foundry became organized, the Local has found it necessary/ to strike on only one occasion. That was in 1946 when the United Steeelworkers were seeking wage increases throughout the industry. The Waterbury Local, as well as one other in the state, ir Collinsville, went out on strike. However, the union and company officials came to terms and th workers returned to their jobs. As President Andy is chairman of the grievance committee, chairman of the negotiating committee and spokesman for the union, most of the decisions involving unioi members are left to his discretion. Outside, of the one strike in 1946, he has maintained, fairly good relations between workers and the company management. He was first elected to the International Wage and Policy committee in Boston, in 1946. Delegates from all over Connectiscut voted in the election and he -won the position, to represent all steelworkers in the state after a hot contest. Last year he was reelected unanimously. Occasionally, when the committee is called into session in Pittsburgh or other large steel producing centers, Andy finds it necessary to leave his family for a few days. This does not particularly meet with his approval, but he realizes that when he accepted the post he also accepted that responsibility, and heads for the meeting with only one thought—to do wha't in his estimation is best for his fellow workers. Andy makes every effort to follow this rule in all his dealings as a union representative. He was elected by the steelworkers because they felt he would look out for their interests and he makes every effort to live up to the faith they put in him.
