--"Lawyer; was District attorney in Iowa county."

[Mary Emogene Hazeltine, One Hundred Years of Wisconsin Authorship 1836-1937: A Contribution to a Bibliography of Books by Wisconsin Authors 54 (Wisconsin Library Association, October 1937)(typescript)]

"Mr. Pollard is an Iowa county man, of which constituency he was elected district attorney immediately after his graduation from the law school [presumably, the University of Wisconsin]. Since then he has held a government position in connection with Indian territory affairs and is now giving much of his time to mining interests in southwestern Wisconsin. Some years ago he issued a volume of verses, chiefly on the dialect order, marked by delicious humor, and another will make its appearance in the near future." [Wisconsin Alumni Association, Wisconsin Alumni Magazine 325 (1905)]

Levi Pollard was born, at Eden, Wisconsin, in 1871 and was a graduate of the University of Wisconsin. A resident of Dodgeville, Wisconsin, he was, at one time, an Indian land appraiser. [A. Augustus Wright (ed.), Who's Who in the Lyceum 150 (Philadelphia: Pearson Brothers, 1906)][The Who's Who in the Lyceum entry for Pollard indicates that in addition to his collection of poems published in 1902, he is the author of a dramatic novel, The Cleverest Man in Cleverville, published in 1906. We find no OCLC listing for the novel.]
