Harry Emerson

HARRY EMERSON, the son of Mrs. M. J. Emerson, of this city, was born in Cedar County, March 5th, 1894, now having reached his twenty-fourth birthday. He attended the public schools in this city, where his entire life has been spent with the exception of the past three years, during which time he was employed with the Cedar Rapids Vulcanizing Co., until May 17th, of this year, when he enlisted in the services of his country. He enlisted at Cedar Rapids and was immediately
sent to Camp Holabird, Md., where he was assigned to the Motor Transport Corp. More fortunate than many of the boys, who have enlisted, during the seven months in the service he has not been transferred to different camps, having remained at Camp Holabird during the entire time. The 8th of this month he returned to his company, after having enjoyed a fifteen day furlough with his mother and other relatives in this vicinity. He is well pleased with the work in connection with the army, but will be glad to return to civilian life and take up his former work, although as long as the war was in progress his one ambition was to get across the ocean and take part in the conflict.
