    Notes 
    • RJCarr: William D. (Bill) Carr advised, and Ted Carney corroborated, that Louis had his shoes repaired by his brother Arthur when funds ran short during the depression. Apparently, with funds scarce at times in parts of the Carr family, there allegedly was some irritation that their mother (Elizabeth Donnelly) donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to local hospitals. (Louis Drury was the man who instilled in his eldest grandson - me - a habit of saving a portion of all earnings, however small. Those savings began in 2nd grade when he would tip me for trips made to the grocery store around the corner from his apartment. Good habits a hard to break.)

      RJCarr, 26 Apr 2022: When visiting Terry Malone Carr at her husband William/Bill Carr's funeral in Carroll, IA, Terry remarked that when Bill's parent's apartment in Spring Lake, NJ was cleared out (following their final move to Carroll, IA), the offspring found a stash of cash under the living room rugs. There were chuckles between and among the three offspring. On a health and welfare call to Terry a week later, she mentioned finding a "spare" wallet in her husband's underwear drawer. The wallet had no cards or identification in it - but there was $200 which led her to chuckle. She then found a third wallet in a jacket last worn when they traveled to Argentina in the early 2000s. That wallet had no identification, but -- there was $1,000 in cash. More chuckling. And of course, she later learned that the were unexpected burial bills to be paid: $500 to open his grave and $490 to close it. Bill must have expected that there would be unforeseen bills to be paid - and planned for those occasions as his father must have taught him.

    Link to Google MapsMilitary Service - WWI On 01 October, 1918, less than three weeks after he registered for the draft, Louis entered Company C, Student Army Training Center (SATC) at NYU. He was paid $30/ month while he participated in the established curriculum. Although the details of his specific area of concentration are not known, a Marshall S. Brown document in the NYU archives indicated the draftees were provided 42 hours/week of essential and allied subjects while also performing military drill for 11 hours/week. Essential courses included military law, hygiene and sanitation, surveying, map making, modern ordinance, and a war-issues course. At the end of their studies [between one and three terms, depending on age] the students were assigned to officer or non-commissioned officer training programs, a depot brigade, or permitted further study in engineering, medicine or law. That first term of SATC officer training had been underway for less than 6 weeks when the Armistice was signed in Paris. Deliberations about the status of the SATC continued until 26 November when a telephone call from the AGO (Adjutant Generals Office) stipulated that the program would be deactivated on 19 December. Thus on the specified date, Louis and countless other privates were issued their final pay. Louis received $42.60 in cash which included his November pay of $30, a pro-rated December pay of $19 and a quartermaster deduction of $6.40 which may have been for an item of equipment, clothing or perhaps text books. Following active military service of almost 12 weeks, Louis was a WWI veteran and once again a civilian. - 1 OCT 1918 - Manhattan (New York County), New York, USA Find all individuals with events at this location Link to Google Earth

    Carr, Louis Drury: 2012 Educator and Grand Knight
    Initially this biography, based simply upon memories, was a single page long and thus proved to be a great disappointment to say the least - surely more could be learned with a modicum of effort! After researching his WWI service - which proved to be an education in itself - many other details fell into place. As with the other histories on this website - all veterans - I am indebted to family members for their contributions - the errors are all mine and will be corrected when brought to my attention.
