Russell attended New Pennington School for eight years. In his early twenties, he took a job somewhere in the South. It didn’t work out, so he started home on a train, where he met a man from Wisconsin. The man offered him a job repairing cash registers. So, he continued to Wisconsin, eventually having his own business, “Hart’s Cash Registers and Repair Service.” He was an avid hunter and fisherman, with a cabin on the Mississippi River in Minnesota. After retirement, he spent his winters in Florida.
