|Death: ||Nov. 27, 1918|
Was a member of the 74th Coast Artillery, which with its long range naval guns, were doing front line service near Metz, Germany, when the Armistice was signed. He was stricken with influenza two days after the Armistice and developed pneumonia. His remains were returned to the United States from France.
The War Department has notified Mr. and Mrs. S. B. Archer, of 14th street, that their son Glen died from pneumonia in a base hospital in France. Glen Archer was 21 years old and was employed in the steel mill prior to his entry into the service five months ago. At the time of his death he was a member of the 74th R. R. Artillery.
This is the second son to die within the last 60 days. Harold Archer died in the hospital at Norfolk, Va., from the same disease.
