Sherman Adams Moves to Lincoln
In 1923, Sherman Adams moves to Lincoln and begins work at the Parker-Young Company, where he serves as a Walking Boss. Walking Boss is a name for a logging supervisor or foreman, described as "the big man in the woods." He saw to it that teams were loaded and unloaded, loads were properly measured and recorded, and that the teamsters took care of the horses.
