Claude Hamilton Nolan (1909-1962)262 viewsFather of Doyce H. Nolan.
Claude is responsible for changing the "e" to an "a" in the Nolan name. The car in the picture was given to him by his father, Thomas, upon his return to Carroll County, Georgia from Chicago, Illinois where he had graduated with high honors from an electrical engineering school. He was so mystified with the engine of the car that he took it apart and put it back together while his parents were away. He spent the rest of his life as an auto mechanic.
