Sunday's Obituary ~ William H. Judd, Friend

William Harrison Judd
1st cousin 3x removed
born - December 18, 1881
died - January 17, 1906
burial - Loudon Park Cemetery, Baltimore City, Maryland

In the following obituary we learn that William Harrison Judd attended the McDonogh School. The school which was established in 1873, was semi-military in nature. Poor orphaned boys were selected to attend in exchange for working on the farm.

The article states William began attending the school in 1895 at 14 years of age. By this time both of his parents had died.

Sadly, William was only 25 years old when he passed away in 1906.

William Harrison, Judd, 25 years old, a student at McDough School from 1896 to 1897, died on January 17 at his home, in Lauraville. His funeral took place on January 10. Burial was in Loudon Park Cemetery.

Mr. Judd spent the earlier days after his leaving McDonogh in the employ of H F Miller & Son, this city. Upon the death of Mr. Miller, Mr. Judd moved to New York, where he was made a clerk in the quotation department of the American Can Company, which corporation had been established by Mr. Miller. He remained in that position until he entered the employ of the Automatic Switch Company as chief of the office force.

Mr. Judd's last position, which he accepted upon the dissolution of the American Can Company, was that of bookkeeper with the local wholesale paper house of Dobler & Mudge.

Mr. Judd's reputation among all of his employers as well as his tutors and fellow-students at McDonogh was of the highest order, and he was regarded as gentle, honorable and truthful.

In The Week, a weekly publication of McDonogh School, nearly a column of space was devoted to an account of his death.
