Final Rites for Col. Corbusier in Arlington
Full military honors were paid the late Col. Philip Worthington Borbusier, U.S. Army (ret.) in funeral services held last Monday at Arlington National Cemetery, Fort Myers, Va. Col. Corbusier, a resident of the Monterey Peninsula Country Club for the past 22 years, succumbed to a heart attack on August 23 at Las Vegas, Nevada, while enroute by motor from California to Texas. Long recognized as one of the best horsemen in the army and one of its outstanding polo players, Col. Borbusier was a veteran of the Spanish-American War as well as the Philippine Insurrection and served during World War I as chief of the Remount Service, AEF, in France. Following the war he was senior instructor of the 56th Cavalry Brigade, Texas National Guard, for nearly seven years. Upon the conclusion of his tour of duty, he was commissioned by the governor of Texas as brevet brigadier general, marking the only time such an honor had been conferred upon an officer of the regular army. He retired from active service on December 31, 1931. Present at the Arlington rites were his wife, Mrs. Ida E. Corbusier, his son, W.H. Corbusier II of Bryan, Texas, and his daughter, Mrs. Millard Pierson of Fort Sam Houston, Texas.
