Former Lowell Man is Veteran of Two Wars
Among the former Lowell high school graduates filling in the form published in last week's Tribune was Maj. Albert B. Chipman, an attorney in the Judge Advocate Department, Washington, D.C., who also saw service in World War I. Mrs. Chipman, the former Emily Nelson, daughter of Mrs. F.E. Nelson, Lowell, who is also a graduate of L.H.S., in a letter to R.J. Brannock, principal, wrote:
" I found this form in our issue of The Lowell Tribune and I am sending it in, although it may not be intended for a case such as this.
"At the time Mr. Chipman graduated from Lowell schools, 1913, the high school was not the 'Lowell District High School,' but I thought this information might be included in your records. He was a veteran of World War I also. Perhaps your list of Lowell graduates who have been in both wars is not very extensive."
As far as can be learned, Major Chipman is the only graduate of Lowell high who has seen service in World Wars I and II. His mother, Mrs. Byron Chipman, is a resident of Gary.
