  • In April 1913 he was elected Crow's Nest Shires first Chairman.
    The following article appeared in The Brisbane Courier on 19 April 1913:-CROW'S NEST SHIRE'S FIRST CHAIRMAN. [See Illustration]
    Councillor James Nolan first came to Crow's Nest in 1878 (writes our correpondent). Up to that time he and his father had been engaged in grazing pursuits on the Downs. The season was a dry one, and Mr. Nolan jun, who was then but a youth, made for Crow's Nest, in quest of relief country. He was so pleased with what he saw that he immediately secured country. Crow's Nest became his home, and to say that he he been prosperous is but a poor way of expressing the success his labours have met with, for he is now a large holder of town and country properties. It can be safely asserted that there is not another man with as wide a knowledge of the district as Mr Nolan. For 14 years he acted as foreman for the late E W Pechey, and the greater portion of that time was spent in scouring the country looking for timber tracts and opening up tracts for the haulers. Nearly all the timber tracks in the district were opened by him and it was Mr Alf Merritt (first clerk of the Highfields Shire) who blazed the road from what is now known as Lawson's farm (then Goulds) to Emu Creek. When the railway line to Crow's Nest was opened Mr Nolan supervised the loading of the first log. For the past nine years Mr Nolan has represented Crow's Nest in the Highfields Shire Council and he was a keen mover in the matter of the separation which, was recently effected. When the poll was taken for the new shire Mr Nolan headed it by a large majority, and of all the elected was the only man who had previously held a seat in a council. His election as Chairman was unanimous, and with his experience, together with the fact that he has the interest of town and district keenly at heart, the coming year under his direction should prove a very successful one."
