  • Notes 
    • His World War I draft card, dated 5 Jun 1917, identifies him as a medical student at Rush Medical College in Chicago. His World War II draft card, dated 27 Apr 1942, identifies him as a physician practicing in Chicago.

      He was a commander in the modern order of the Knights Templar, a Masonic organization open only to professed Christians.

      His gravestone and his Chicago Tribune obituary (citation details below) both give his death date as 5 Dec 1963, not 6 Dec as asserted by Fred D. Clark (citation details below).
