History / Biographical Note

Biographical / Historical

Rebekah Crawford lived in New York City.

Mrs. C. Robert Grimm (Betty) was caught in Germany at the outbreak of the War when visiting her husband's family. Mr. Grimm (1849-1916) had moved to the U.S. in 1881, becoming a construction engineer in Philadelphia and New York. After his death in Germany, the War made it impossible for his wife to return to New York.

John Cresson Trautwine, Jr. (1850-1924) was a civil engineer in Philadelphia and editor of his father's annual CIVIL ENGINEER'S POCKET BOOK.
