ADMIRAL CLOVER DIES ON TRAIN IN WYOMING
Retired Veteran of 41 Years’ Service Was On His Way From California to Washington
NEW YORK, October 16, 1919 – A telegram was received in this city yesterday by Superintendent George F. Clover of St. Luke’s Hospital that his brother, Rear Admiral Richardson Clover, retied, had died on the Overland Limited, while enroute from California to his home in Washington, D.C. At the time of his death, which was due to nephritis, the train was approaching Cheyenne, Wyoming. Admiral Clover, who was 73 years old, had been suffering from heart disease for several years.

It is believed that the change in the air during the passage over the mountains was too great a strain for him. The funeral services will be held in Washington following arrival of the body there. With him on the train at the time were his wife, who was Miss Dora Miller, daughter of the late United States Senator John F. Miller of California, and their daughter, Miss Dora Clover.

Rear Admiral Clover was graduated from Annapolis in 1867, and had a long and distinguished career in the service, including twenty-two years of sea duty. He was in charge of the survey of Southeast Alaska in 1885-1886, Chief of the Naval Intelligence Office in 1897, commanded the Bancroft in the Spanish War, was Naval Attaché at London from 1906 until his retirement two years later, he was President of the Board of Inspection and Survey.

He was a member of the Military Order of the Loyal Legion, and the Military Order of Foreign Wars. His clubs in this city were the University and the New York Yacht. His home address in Washington was 1535 New Hampshire Avenue.
