Star cross-country man

Before Christmas I wrote about my wife's 2nd-great-grandfather, Andrew Jackson Halter and several of his children. Her great-grandfather was Calvin Luther Halter, born 16 May 1909 in Evansville, Indiana. He appears in the 1927 school yearbook for Evansville Bosse High School.

He also appears in a photo for the Chemistry Club (2nd row, 4th student on the left), looking very much like he could have been at Hogwarts School for Wizards.

Just after graduation, Calvin married Helen Elva Umbach on 13 June 1927 in Evansville. They appear in the 1930 US Census, living in the household of Helen's parents. Allison's grandmother appears in this census record, not quite a year old.

The family appears in the 1940 US Census in Evansville, Knight Township, Vanderburgh County, Indiana.
