       Hiram F. Hudson--Melvin Nye--George H. Lusk


HIRAM F. HUDSON, of the Nye, Lusk Hudson Co., Thorp, has been actively identified with that concern since 1882, when he, with George H. Lusk and Melvin Nye formed the partnership which has done so much to develop the northwestern part of this county. When the company started in business here, Thorp was a struggling hamlet, through which the railroad had been built less than two years before. Surrounding it were great stretches of forests. It was to these forests that Mr. Hudson turned his attention. He was an expert woodsman, and his experience in this line proved invaluable to the partnership. In the various activities of the company-lumber, milling, mercantile, real estate and financial--Mr. Hudson has taken his part, and has contributed much to its success. A man of plain, unassuming manner, he is interested not only in the development of his own business, but also in the progress of the village, township, community and county, and he has always done his duty as a good citizen. In the pleasant years that he has lived here he has seen the hamlet develop into a flourishing village, of Which he is a leading citizen, and he has seen a lumbering country develop into a region of rich farms and successful dairying industries, and in all of these changes he himself has had his share. The names of Hiram F. Hudson, Melvin Nye and George H. Lusk will ever stand prominently in the story of the decades of their activities here.
