Milton J. Carr Teacher, architect


Services for Milton J. Carr, who had been a teacher and more recently an architect and builder, will be held at 11:30 a.m. tomorrow at the Sharp Street United Methodist Church, Dolphin and Etting streets.

Mr. Carr, who was 88 and lived on McKean Avenue, died Sunday at Bon Secours Hospital after a short illness.

He operated his own business, designing and building mostly houses from the mid-1940s until about 10 years ago, when he began serving only as a consultant.

For about 20 years before going into business, he taught industrial arts at the Booker T. Washington Junior High School.

Before starting at the Baltimore school, he taught at the Fessenden Academy in Florida and at what was then the Agricultural and Technical College at Greensboro, N.C.

The Baltimore native was a graduate of the Hampton Institute.

At the Sharp Street Church, he had served on the administrative board and as Sunday school superintendent.

He is survived by a daughter, Christina Carr Young, and a sister, Theresa Carr Nelson, both of Washington; and two grandsons.
