Congress votes for Carpenter

I have attached the bill passed by Congress in 1937 to pay Carpenter a retirement annuity. FWC House 1937

I’m not sure what has taken me so long to post this as it is one of the best sources for him.  Much information by him as well as supporting letters from Pershing, Harbord, Forbes, Harrison, etc. In his application to Congress he provides such insights as “From the beginning of my service in the Philippines in the expectation that the United Sates might withdraw from the islands, I consistently pursued the objective of developing competent, loyal native employees and officials according to American theory of good government and justice.”  See page 4.
