Eugene F. Gier
It appears that Gier was born in Clay Township, Grundy County. He spent the early part of his life in Conrad, Iowa, which is a smaller town in southwest Grundy County. Gier charged $300 for his furnished plans for the Grundy Center Public Library. In 1918, Gier was listed as one of seven members of the Masons Roman Lodge, no. 564 in Conrad.
