The Rev. WM. Carter

The Rev. WM. Carter was born at Pittington, England, May 22, 1868.  At the age of fifteen he came from England to Illinois, and for three years worked in a store.  He then went to Parsons College, Fairfield, Iowa, from which he was graduated at the age of twenty-two.  Three years later he received a diploma from McCormick Theological Seminary.  His first pastoral work was at Sterling, Ill.  He was there five years, went to Frankfort, Ind., for brief supply work, and was called thence to the pastorate of the First Presbyterian Church at Kansas City in 1899.  Park College conferred the degree of Doctor of Philosophy upon Dr. Carter in 1900.  He is well known through his lectures on literary subjects, especially his lecture on Milton.  He enjoys the distinction of being able to repeat "Paradise Lost" from memory.
     Dr. Carter was married to Miss Alice Kellogg at Des Moines, Ia.  They have two children.
