Seaman, William H.

by Ted Seaman

William H. Seaman, with his wife, Vivian, son Ted, father-in-law, T.E. Albert and later brother-in-law Fred “Fritz” Albert came to Douglas in the summer of 1945, where he assumed the position of Superintendent of Schools, which included teaching, custodial work, piano player and cannery worker.

The family lived in Douglas only two years, leaving during the summer of 1947, due to family needs and pressures.
