Life & Loss

Unable to find many details about Frank's life or loss.

Frank was survived by his wife, Julia, whom he married in 1930. He is buried in Arlington National Cemetery. It seems that he was also survived by a son, Frank Jr., who became an author of maritime and defense history, and the editor of the Naval War College Review.

He was not a qualified naval aviator. The Register of Alumni lists his rank and date of death. There is no mention of him in any Shipmate magazine issues from the period.

Several different sites list his place of death as Washington, D.C.

In March 1935 he was ordered to detach from "Marine Corps Schools, Quantico" for the American Legation, Peiping [Bejing], China.
