      Charles T. Grant, 63, Dead

      Dean Of Akron Law Firm, Ill Only Few Days, Dies After Operation

      By HAROLD J. TAYLOR

      CHARLES TRAVERS GRANT, 63, outstanding member of the Akron bar and dean of the law firm of Rockwell, Grant, Thomas and Buckingham, died at 4:30 a. m. Friday.

      Mrs. Grant, her sister, Mrs. Jonn Spenzer of Cleveland, and two members of the law firm, Frank Rockwell and Lisle Buckingham, were at his bedside at Peoples hospital when death came.

      One of the ablest lawyers ever to practice his profession in Summit county, Grant had been in apparently excellent health until last Monday. He became ill Monday noon at the Akron City club.

      Ordered To Hospital

      Seemingly recovered, he had planned to attend the annual meeting of the Portage Country club that evening, but Instead was ordered to the hospital by his physicians.

      At 11 p. m. Monday a major operation was performed.

      A relapse came early Friday after his condition had apparently greatly Improved. He lost ground fast in the early morning hours.

      Widely known and highly respect ed, Grant's career as an Akron law-

      CHARLES T. GRANT DIES AT HOSPITAL

      Prominent Akron Attorney Taken; Wife, Sister At Bedside
      (Continued from Fee One)

      yer was one of the most colorful the city has known. He was counsel In many of the biggest oases handled la local courts.

      Grant represented Goodyear in the famous Dillon-Read suits of several years ago in which stockholders sought to upset the refinancing of the company. These suits involved many millions of dollars.

      Aids Credit Corp.

      In October 1931, Grant was oounsel for and one of the moving spirits in the formation of the Akron Credit Corp. which staved off a financial crisis for the city at that time, and made possible the merger. of the First Trust & Savings Co. and the Central Depositors Bank & Trust Co.

      He went without sleep for days while these negotiations went forward.

      Grant played a conspicuous part in the recent First-Central Trust Co. banker trials. Upon his motion an indictment against Sterling B Cramer, former president of First-Central, in connection with permitting certain withdrawals under fine so-called "Akron plan" was dismissed.

      Grant's partner, Rockwell, represented George W. Merz and Charles and Walter Herberich in their later trials for alleged misapplication of funds, winning acquittals. Rockwell frequently consulted with Grant on matters of policy in these oases.

      Directs Miller Merger

      As vice president and counsel for the Miller Rubber Co., he directed the legal details of that concern's merger with the B. F. Goodrich Co.

      The great respect members of the Akron bar association felt for Attorney Grant is reflected! in the statement of Edmund T. Burroughs, president.

      "Personally I feel very deeply the loss of Attorney Grant from our midst,' he said. "There was something about him that made lawyers feel particularly close and friendly toward him. I think the reason for tills was his squareness in everything."

      "If he won a law case he always won it fairly and on sheer merit. He was a man of great ability. I think there is no lawyer in Akron who will not feel sad over this Christmas time because of his death."

      ln 1928 Attorney Grant received the unanimous endorsement of the Akron Bar association urging his appointment to the federal bench at Cleveland to succeed the late Judge D. C. Westenhaver.

      From 1910 to 1913 Grant and his law partner, Frank Rockwell, were much in the limelight when Rockwell was county prosecutor and Grant his only assistant. The prosecutor's office of that day was as colorful as it ever has been, before or after.

      Association In the prosecutor's office led to formation of the law firm of Rockwell and Grant, later enlarged by the addition of Attorneys Lisle Buckingham and Joseph Thomas, Jr.

      Place Of Mourning

      Grant's handsome home at 786 Merriman rd., Friday was a place of mourning instead of the gay place to which he had hoped to transform it for the holiday period.

      Every holiday found the house filled with friends and relatives. Today they were there, too, to offer their condolences and help Mrs. Grant in any possible way to withstand the blow which means for her the end of a lifetime romance.

      Charles Grant was born on the Grant farm in Cuyahoga Falls, along the Gorge, on Oct. 9, 1870. At the ceremony at which he was baptized a short time later In the First Congregational church, Alnor Kittelberger, who later became his wife, also was baptized.

      Their families were friends and Alnor and Charles were together as children and young people. They attended school in Cuyahoga Falls together.

      Charles attended Western Reserve academy, Hudson, graduating in 1889, went to Princeton, graduating In 1893, taught for a year at Princeton preparatory school, and then returned to his home and read law with his uncle, the late Judge C. R. Grant, appellate court Jurist, a leading member of the oar at that time.

      He joined the firm of Green, Grant and Sieber in 1894.

      Charles T. Grant and Alnor Kittelberger were married in the Kittelberger family home at Cuyahoga Falls, June 15, 1898. They went to housekeeping in a home at 612 Gorge blvd., located on property which had been a part of the Grant parental farm.

      Build New Home

      There they lived until six years ago when they built the Merrlman rd. home. Although he had no children, Charles Grant loved them dearly. His nieces and nephews were often his playfellows. His friends recall a favorite story of his about surprising a nephew and a niece arguing which of them could work him best.

      Several promising young men have been able to attend college largely through Attorney Grant's assistance.

      Silent On Philanthropies

      His many personal philanthropies were carried out without the knowledge of even his closest friends and business associates.

      Grant was, in addition, a leader in civic affairs, and liberal donor to causes of civic betterment.

      A hard worker, Grant rose regularly at 6 a. m., was always at his office at 8, and worked late into the afternoon. He arranged to have Saturday afternoons off for golf in the summer and for a game of cards with friends in the winter.
