Arthur William Dorland was born April 3, 1917, to Aubrey Phillip and Harriett C. (Buchanan) Dorland in Council Bluffs, Iowa.

He was honorably discharged in 1946 and returned to work as a farmer on the same farm he worked prior to his military service. On February 4, 1950, Art married Hazel Hull. The couple rented a farm between Council Bluffs and Treynor for four years then moved to Underwood for twelve years, finally settling in the Woodbine area farming for eighteen years before retiring. Hazel died in February of 1998. Art married Florence Brockelsby Miller. She died in January of 2007.
