Title Page447
Description THE UTAH NEWSPAPER HALL OF FAME suddenly passed away and no replacement was available, for a time shared those duties with a feminine fellow graduate. The principal's $60 per month salary was evenly divided between them. Soon afterward, the Carltons returned to Mantua, Ohio, where David bought half-interest in a sawmill and Karl was able to enroll in college at Hiram and then at Valparaiso. He became a winter-time teacher, summer-time carpenter and in 1889, while living in Chicago, married Cora Pierce of Shalers-ville, Ohio. Karl was a carpenter for the California State Commission at its display on the grounds of the World's Columbian Exposition in 1892-93. He would recall it was there he "caught a severe case of California fever, a disease which is hard to cure." Together with son David and daughter Fanny, the Carltons made the move to the West Coast, arriving in Hemet on July 17, 1895. With Karl a part-time fruit grower on a 10-acre plot of land he'd purchased and a part-time carpenter, they lived there until 1904, then moved to Riverside. Working as a carpenter at the noted Riverside Inn, Karl also became a County Road Supervisor, was active in the Odd Fellows Lodge and in civic affairs. It was there he met M. J. Westerfield and made a career change in his 50s. Wrote Dr. Bert C. Williams, a Chapman (California) College professor, after Karl Carlton's death: "He was a great spirit - sharp of mind, with a sly sense of humor that could see through human frailties and yet not be scornful of them. We shall miss him. He is the type of independent and creative spirit that has made America great. His has been a significant life that needs no eulogy. His passing, though it brings a breaking of bonds of close to a century's duration, is a fitting climax to a meaningful life."
