Obituary:
"Struck down in the prime of young manhood, and in the midst of a successful career, by a dread disease, against the ravages of which all the efforts of modern medical science proved futile. Charles Heald, eldest son of Mr. and Mrs. E. A. Heald of Canton, died Tuesday morning in the St. Bernard hospital, in Chicago, after a week of illness, due to an attack of cerebro-spinal meningitis. Mr. Heald's illness began with a severe headache on Tuesday of last week. His condition grew steadily worse during the day, and his physician, suspecting the character of the malady, hurried the patient to the hospital, where the serum used as an antitoxin for the meningitis germ was administered within 12 hours after the attack occurred. There was immediate improvement, and Mr. and Mrs. E. A. Heald, who had been called to Chicago, returned home, the physicians having expressed the opinion that recovery would follow. The change in the condition of the patient occurred Sunday night, and from that time it appears decline was rapid.
"Charles Heald was born in Canton June 5, 1884. He was educated in the city schools, graduating from the high school and later entering the University of Illinois, where he took a two-years' course in architecture. After leaving the university he went to Chicago, entering the employ of a firm of architects there, and later became associated with Architect Arthur Heuy, with whose firm he was identified at the time of his death.
"In school and college he was an excellent student, making rapid advances in his studies, and in his chosen profession he had remarkable success, forging well to the front ranks of the younger architects of Chicago, among whom he was regarded as one of the most promising of their number. In Canton he had many warm friends who noted his successful career with pleasure and approbation and to whom the news of his untimely end brings profound and sincere regret, Mr. Heald was married about four years ago to Miss Eloise McMinn of Chicago, and she and one little daughter [Charloise Heald Allen], aged two and a half years, survive him. Other near relatives are the parents, Mr. and Mrs. E. A. Heald, and two brothers and one sister - Dean and Miss Mary Heald, at home, and Mark Heald, who is a student in Oberlin, O. The latter has been notified of his brother's death and will arrive in Canton Wednesday. C. T. Heald is the young man's grandfather.
"The bereaved family have the heart-felt sympathy of all Canton in their great sorrow."
