Col. Charles H. Morrow, commandant of the regular United States Army Post at Fort Niagara, N.Y., died suddenly Saturday night while reading in his library.

Col. Morrow was 58 years old. His 33 years of regular Army service following his graduation from West Point took him to the Hawaiian Islands, Siberia, Alaska, the Philippines and the Mexican border.

His recent transfer from Fort Niagara to the Third Corps area of Baltimore, effective this month, brought numerous protests from western New York patriotic and historical organizations. During his five years at the post Colonel Morrow had been active in the restoration of the old French fort on the reservation. Many organizations desired to continue him in command of the post until this work had been completed.

The war department however, ruled against the petitions and Col. Morrow was preparing to move.

Col. Morrow was born in Somerset, a son of Judge T.Z. and Jennie Crosson Bradley Morrow, he was a twin of Edwin P. Morrow, former Governor of Kentucky, whose death occurred suddenly six months ago, June 15, at the home of their cousin, Mrs. John G. South in Frankfort.

For several years Col. Morrow resided in Lexington, where he was in the organized reserve division of the United States Army. His wife was Miss Neenie Fetter of Louisville.
