W.B. Sturgis Dies in Carmel
Death came last evening for William Bayard Sturgis, retired mechanical engineer, inventor, and noted sports authority who had made his home in Carmel for the past 10 years. Mr. Sturgis died in a local hospital after a brief illness. He was born Sept. 7, 1885, in Cheyenne, Wyo., and after completing prepatory studies at Groton, was graduated from Cornell University in 1908. He later did postgraduate work at Johns Hopkins. Prior to his retirement Mr. Sturgis was associated with the Du Pont Company in Chicago for many years. Throughout his life he was an ardent sportsman, a recognized authority on the use of the fly in fishing. His book on fly-tying and casting is an accepted guide in the field of sport. With his wife, the late Mrs. Edith Andrews Sturgis, he established a home in Carmel on Atherton Drive and Rio road. Mrs. Sturgis’ death occurred Jan. 13, 1946. He leaves a brother, Reginald H. Sturgis of New York City. Private graveside rites will be held at 3 p.m. Monday in the Monterey City Cemetery, with the Rev. Alfred B. Seccombe officiating. The Paul Mortuary is in charge of arrangements.
