Dr. Daniel Carr Main, the state medical director for the veteran's work, was killed in the storm at Matecumbe Key, on Labor Day. Dr. Main was born in Rhode Island 59 years ago but came to Florida as a young boy. He enlisted in the Spanish-American War and received his medical education after being mustered out of the service. In 1909 he settled in Welaka, where he practiced his profession until about 1916 when he went to Alfred, N.Y., where his father was dean of a theological college. He served as medical officer for the local S.A.T.C. during the early part of the war and achieved distinction by holding deaths from flu during the epidemic to an astonishing low rate. Volunteering for overseas service, Dr. Main was prevented from engaging in this capacity owing to his physical condition, but was attached to St. Elizabeth's Hospital at Washington, D.C. where he served as clinical director for several years. He returned to Florida in 1928 on the retired officer's roster with the rank of major and just last year had again resumed active duty in connection with the veteran's program in the state. He was first made medical director at Camp Welaka and later director of veteran's camps on the Keys. Just a few months ago he was appointed state medical director. He is survived by his widow, five children and a brother, George Main of Daytona Beach. The children are Elwyn, officer manager of the veteran's camp at Leesburg, and George, Charles, D.C. Jr. and Dorothy, all of Pomona. (extracted from his obituary published in "Palatka Daily News" September 6, 1935.)
