Carl Crow’s Final Resting Place



As my new book is out soon (look at the left hand column for details) I feel it’s time to finish of the last few bits of Carl Crow stuff I’ve got lying around. Carl pops up in the new book as it is a history of the old China press corps but not too much to avoid repetition. It’s also the case that I have edited Carl’s diaries from his Burma Road trip in 1939 from Rangoon to Chungking and they’ll hopefully be published later in the year (autumn probably).

While I was researching the book a friend in America was good enough to track down Carl’s grave. I knew that Carl had died at his apartment on Washington Place, New York City on the 8th June 1945 of cancer. He was then transferred to the Walter B Cooke Funeral Home on West 72nd Street, Manhattan, for final internment at the Odd Fellows Cemetery on Main Street, Fredericktown, Missouri, where he was eventually buried next to his mother and father. His final instructions were for no flowers but all contributions to be sent to the American Society for the Control of Cancer. Carl was originally from Missouri and this was his wish.

Unfortunately I could never quite find the time, money or a decent excuse to get to Fredericktown. Still a friend helped while passing close by. He found the Odd Fellows Cemetery and Carl’s grave as you can see in the pictures. It looks a peaceful place.

You can also use an eye shadow or white silver and black eyeliner - it looks good with pale skin. If you're focusing on the red lips, skip the bronzer and foundation to go next to your skin tone as possible, and use a powder of light that illuminates. Finish with a natural reddish blush. Once you have this form of natural light in your eyes, your face, you can have fun with a bold red lip liner and lipstick lip.
