About Col. Charles Arthur Carlisle

Excerpted from the "Behind the Name" column, SOUTH BEND TRIBUNE, December 28, 2015

Col. Charles Arthur Carlisle, a longtime employee of Studebaker Corp. and husband of Anne Studebaker, was born May 3, 1864, in Chillicothe, Ohio. Carlisle was the third of Meade and Emma (née Barr) Carlisle's nine children. He attended public schools then went to work to help support the large family.

Carlisle worked first as a grocery clerk, then as a messenger for Marietta & Cincinnati Railroad. At the age of 20, he took a job as a newspaperman for the Ohio State Journal but later returned to work for the railroads. In 1888, he worked his way through the ranks to become a purchasing agent for the entire system of Toledo & Ohio Central Railroad.

It is not known exactly how Carlisle met his wife, the only daughter of Clement Studebaker, co-founder of Studebaker Bros. Manufacturing Co. It may have been during a business trip to Indiana or at a social gathering at Tippecanoe Place, the Clement Studebaker home. It was there that the pair married Sept. 17, 1891, at what was described as "the social event of the year."

Carlisle relocated to South Bend after the wedding and went to work for the family business. For almost 50 years, he served on the board of directors and as a purchasing agent for the company. He witnessed Studebaker's transition from a wagon manufacturer to an automobile giant.

Meanwhile, Carlisle maintained a diverse array of other business and personal interests. At various times he was president of American Trust Co., vice president of the National Association of Manufacturers, director of the Chicago, South Shore & South Bend Railroad and vice president of the Scotch-Irish Society of America. He also was an active member of the Masons, the Methodist Church and the Northern Indiana Historical Society.

Carlisle earned the military rank of colonel by serving four years on the military staffs of two Indiana governors, James A. Mount and Winfield T. Durbin, who served consecutively from 1897 to 1905. Carlisle also ran for Congress in 1912, albeit unsuccessfully.

He and his wife, who preceded him in death, had seven children. [Anne, Charles Jr., Kathryn, Woodson, Alice, Richard & Eleanor] Charles died Sept. 2, 1938, at the age of 74, and is buried in South Bend's Riverview Cemetery.
