He was the author of several books on Indiana county and Catholic history, including "A History of Catholicity and Catholic Institutions in Indianapolis" in 1887. Mrs. Carr was a member of SS. Peter and Paul Cathedral Parish and the Caroline Scott Harrison Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution. She was the last surviving charter member of the Proctor Club. During World War 1 she did Red Cross work.
