Subject: RE: Canterbury Hall

Message Detail:
Mark, For some reason -- probably something I did or didn't do -- my reply last evening didn't appear. There was also a Canterbury Hall in wartime Washington, DC, closer to the Signal Camp in Georgetown, which the context of the court of inquiry suggests to me was the probable one that Felts frequented and perhaps used as his off-base quarters. (See link below.)

(Thinking of Dr. Lowery's books and the survey of bawdy houses ordered in wartime D.C., I suggested more research might be justified, and -- with tongue in cheek -- wondered if the Canterbury House was a franchise ... or copy-cat house.) Speaking out against a superior as both Felts and witnesses did, was unusual and may cause us to rethink Myer's character and also to search the subsequent careers of Felts and his friends. I did note, later last night, that Brown and the Veteran Signal Corps Assn carried Felts in the roster of 1896 comrades, so he apparently did not suffer retaliation or disgrace in his acquital.
