Read letters from a soldier, with portraits, detailed drawings, and first-person accounts, all chronicled by an American field artillery driver, deployed in France during World War I. C Battery abruptly left Camp Devens, Massachusetts, in early September 1917. Initially the Army experience proved a great adventure for the twenty-one year-old from rural Indiana. During service overseas Clarence wrote to his bride Margie whenever possible, sometimes by candlelight with only a broken pencil, sometimes on whatever scraps of paper available. He drew pictures of fellow soldiers, the surrounding countryside, and French villages. He wrote a first-person account of the Second Battle of the Marne, published as a series in the Christian Science Monitor, September through November, 1918. After the war a wiser, albeit disillusioned Clarence became an author and syndicated journalist, with articles published in popular magazines and newspapers. He co-authored two books on swimming in collaboration with Johnny Weissmuller and Johnny's coach, William Bachrach. Toward the end of his career, after fifteen years at the Christian Science Monitor as general news and feature writer and central sporting representative, Clarence accepted the position of Publicity and Campaign Director: American Olympic Committee, raising funds for American athletes headed for the 1936 Olympic Games in Berlin.
