And his Sister, Elizabeth Parrish Starr, a Civilian volunteer  among a couple of groups she joined in WWI, was French War Emergency Fund, and became head of the Reconstruction of the Civilian Section of the Somme region. She remained in France after the war, and got hung up in WWII, and founded the  Foyers des Soldats de France. and ran a shelter for children affected by the war. She dies in like early 1943 from illness related to lack of food among other ills.

Wow what a story and great photo to match! Definitely want to dive more into him. This would make a great movie or at least book about a little known topic of American involvement in WWI. We weren't all "Johnny come latelys!"
