Pollard Services Here January 17

Many long time residents of Springfield attended the funeral services Tuesday, January 17 for Dr. William H. Pollard who died January 14 at Ctler City where he had made his home for the past four years. Dr. Pollard was a friend and family doctor to many in this area until his retirement in 1947.

He was born July 5, 1877 at Tigard and was graduated from Willamette University in 1907 with a doctor's degree in medicine. While going to Willamette he was a star athlete. Upon graduation, he opened an office in Marcola where he practiced for two years before moving to Springfield and opening his office here. He was located upstairs in what is now the Gerlach building.

Dr. Pollard served as an Army surgeon during World War I and was also a doctor for the Southern Pacific Railroad. He was a past commander of the American Legion and a member of the Veterans of Foreign Wars.

He belonged to Ebbert Memorial Methodist church and was a charger member of the Methodist Brotherhood. He was a lay delegate to the Oregon Conference and for years was on the church board of directors.

During his many years spent in Springfield he also took an active interest in civic affairs, serving as mayor from 1937 until 1941 and serving during the early 1920s as a director on the school board.

Dr. Pollard moved from this area to Nelscott on the coast in 1947. His wife, the former Gustena Randall whom he married in Oregon City in 1908, died in March of 1956. In December of that year he married Minnie Payne at Taft.

In addition to his wife other survivors include two daughters, Mrs. Jule Steen of Junction City and Mrs. Ruth Hoover of Casper, Wyoming, Two sons, Dr. William T. Pollard of Junction City and Robert W. Pollard of Portland; 11 grandchildren: four great-grandchildren; four sisters, Mrs. Nell Price, Mrs. Hattie McDaniels, Mrs. Anna McDonald and Mrs. Rosa Tigard, all of Tigard; one brother John Hohman of Portland; many nieces and nephews.
