"Julian G. Guiteras, Captain, Engineers' Corps, A. E. F., France, died of pneumonia on October 12, 1918, in Base Hospital No. 15, Chaumont, France. Captain Guiteras was born in New York City on November 14, 1889. He was educated in the city schools, later attending Columbia University from which he was graduated in 1913 with the degree of M.E.
His first position was with the Cadillac Motor Car Co., Detroit, Mich., where he attended their school of applied mechanics, worked through the apprentice course and became draftsman in the electrical department. In October 1915 he became connected with the Hall-Scott Motor Car Co., West Berkeley, Cal., as draftsman, his duties dealing with the designing and testing of aviation engines and propellers, standardization of parts and the systematizing of drafting-room records.
In January 1917 Captain Guiteras passed successfully an examination for a second lieutenancy in the Regular Army, and upon receiving his commission was ordered to Fort Leavenworth for training. Upon the completion of his course there he received a first lieutenant's commission and was sent to Vancouver Barracks, Washington, whence he sailed for France in December 1917 with a captain's commission. In France he was instructor in pioneering in the Pioneer School of Chatillon-Sur-Seine and was later ordered to bridge reconnaissance work. It was while on this work that he contracted influenza which developed into pneumonia.
Captain Guiteras became a junior member of the Society in 1916."
