C.R. Cory was a Renaissance Man in every way. He played basketball on the General Motors basketball team. He rode, golfed, and swam. During the era of silent film, C.R. Cory would play music to provide background music to films in theaters. He painted in oils, was a voracious reader of all sorts of genre, and wrote books on die cutting. (Die design manual,: A course in die design for apprentices, publ. 1937, 1941); Mr. Cory could most always be seen in his chair in the family room with a table strewn with books and papers. He wrote about religion, the history of Henry Ford's auto empire, and countless notes to friends and loved ones. Besides this, Mr. Cory played both the clarinet and violin, and designed a tank during World War II. Mr. Cory was a graduate of Case Western Reserve in Ohio, and was an engineer for Fisher Body (General Motors) in Detroit, Michigan.
