      When the Conneaut Lake Park Co. was organized in 1890 he became its publicity manager and held the position until his death. For the last 20 years he was correspondent for the "Press" in the Conneaut Lake region.
      Putnam was a staunch Democrat and was selected by President Wilson as postmaster at Linesville, serving in this capacity for nine years.
      He was married to Miss Katherine Glenn, daughter of one of the oldest families of Crawford County.
