Mahoning Dispatch, Canfield, Mahoning Co. OH,
Fri, 23 Dec 1881

"Death of Dr. Calvin Died at his residence in Canfield, after a brief but painful illness of malignant diphtheria, on Sunday morning, Dec. 18th, 1881, Dr. A. W. Calvin, aged 36 years. The sudden and unexpected death of Dr. Calvin, which occurred last Sabbath morning about 7 o'clock, has cast a shadow of sorrow and gloom over the whole community, who consider his decease an almost irreparable loss, having been linked together by the ties of friendship and brotherly affection, as a faithful physician and a highly esteemed citizen. The Doctor contracted the disease which carried him off on the prime of his manhood, while attending to his professional duties. Deceased leaves a wife and three children, besides a large number of relatives, (brothers and sisters) friends and acquaintances, who deeply mourn his departure. Memorial services are to be held next Sabbath afternoon in the Presbyterian Church, after which an historical sketch of deceased's life written by an intimate friend, will appear in next issue of the Dispatch."

Mahoning Dispatch, Fri, 6 Jan 1882 Memorial Canfield Lodge no. 155, IOOF Dec. 21, 1881
"Whereas death, with a suddenness that shocks and casts a gloom over the entire community, and in the prime of vigorous and promising manhood, has removed from this life our esteemed and well beloved Brother Dr. A. W. Calvin, therefore
Resolved, That in profound sorrow we bow in humble submission to this mysterious providence of Him who ordereth all things and although we mourn the loss as a great public calamity, yet we cherish with feelings of high veneration, his many manly virtues. He was a kind fraternal member of this Order, and affectionate, devoted husband, a loving and indulgent father, a generous and warm hearted friend and obliging neighbor, a good and enterprising citizen, useful in his profession and faithful in the discharge of duty. He was conservative, liberal and tolerant in his views, winning friends from all parties and the believers of every creed. Those who knew him best, respected, honored and loved him most.
Resolved; That we tender to the bereaved family and sorrowing friends, in their deep affliction, the heartfelt sympathy of the members of Canfield Lodge, No. 155, IOOF.
Resolved; That the members of this Lodge wear the usual badge of mourning for thirty days, in token of respect for the deceased brother.
Resolved; That a copy of these resolutions be sent to the family of our deceased brother, that they be spread on the records of this Lodge, and published in the Mahoning Dispatch.
Committee S. S. Macklin H. A. Manchester J. Truesdale"

Dr. A.W. Calvin's New Home
Mahoning Dispatch, Fri, 28 Nov 1879
"Home and County Affairs - The palatial and handsome residence of Dr. A. W. Calvin, of this place, which has been in course of erection during the past summer, was completed about ten days ago, and his family moved in last week and are now occupying it. The building is an ornament to the town and a credit to the ability and genius of the architect, Mr. A. S. Porter. All the surroundings - a large stable and other fine out buildings-are in happy contrast with the dwelling house, and everything connected with it is finished in the most modern style, regardless of expenses, making it one of the most commodious, convenient and cozy homes in the town."
