Information from Nancy Gertrude Hanks (née Brown)

He was a wealthy landscape architect, a great job, however, it had suffered during the depression. He had always been able to find jobs during the depression. At one point, he worked at a place called Quonset, a large Navy base during World War II. He, his wife, Gertrude, and their children moved a lot in Rhode Island.
