Amo L. Hulet was the beloved supervisor, treasurer
and historian of Bloomfield Township for as long as anyone can remember.
He served the Township for 42 years as a member of the board of trustees, and in his 78 years as a resident of Oakland County, most of them spent in the Township,
he was schoolteacher to thousands of Bloomfield's children,
starting his teaching duties in the one-room Tuscarora school, and going on to be director of attendance in Pontiac schools and teaching math at Dondero High School.
Mr. Hulet was appointed to the Township board in 1933 and served in many capacities right up to his death which occured at age 81.
If he had been alive, he would have helped write this history, as he was known throughout the county as the local treasury of historic information.
He is very much missed, but he has left behind a legacy of the statesmanlike qualities which have helped bring Bloomfield from its infancy to its present stature and maturity.
