Biographical history

Aaron Clemens Kolb was born in Berlin (Kitchener), Ontario in 1871 to Jacob and Maria Kolb. He worked with a publishing firm in Elkhart, Indiana before moving to the Herbert, Saskatchewan district around 1905. He farmed in the Main Centre district for several years before moving to Herbert to work for an implement business. In June, 1912, Kolb was appointed postmaster at Herbert and held the position until 1931, when he moved to Kitchener, Ontario.

During his career, Kolb helped organize the Saskatchewan Postmasters' Association and served as its president for six consecutive years. He was a delegate to several national postmasters' conventions across the country. Kolb was also active in the Herbert community and was involved with the Methodist Church and various sports organizations, including the Herbert Football Club.

Kolb died in Kitchener, Ontario on May 15, 1937. He was buried in a cemetery near Herbert.
