Vermont Adjutant General. Page graduated from the University of Vermont and entered the Army in 1943, received a commission through Officer Candidate School in 1944, served in the European Theater, and was a Captain when he was discharged in 1946. He was recalled to active duty in the 1950s for the Korean War. In December, 1966 Page was a Brigadier General and commander of the Vermont National Guard's 86th Armored Brigade, Chairman of the Lamoille County Republican Committee, and an executive with the Ruberoid Corporation when the governor named him to the Adjutant General's position, which had been left vacant when Francis Billado died in September. From September until Page's appointment the position had been filled on an acting basis by Deputy Adjutant General Reginald Cram. Cram resigned when Page was sworn in, and then campaigned in the state legislature for a full term. In an upset, Cram defeated Page in the legislature's February, 1967 secret ballot election, ending Page's three month tenure. General Page's decorations included the Combat Infantryman's Badge and two awards of the Bronze Star Medal. He was a member of the Veterans of Foreign Wars, the American Legion, and numerous other civic, professional and fraternal organizations.
