Location: Birmingham, Alabama
Relationship to: Oliver C. Carmichael (Uncle), CRB Delegate, Dec. 1914 thru March 1915.
Statement: I'm writing a family biography and am interested in any information regarding the activities of OIiver C. Carmichael, who served in the Antwerp area with his colleague, B. Harvie Branscomb. At the request of Cardinal Mercier of Malines, they took his Christmas Pastoral Letter of December 1914, shortly after its printing, through the German lines and mailed it to London. A copy of the letter appeared in the London Times. I would also like to know any details about the provision of automobiles for transportation of the CRB delegates.
