Muenchow, Arthur H. (1904? - 4 June 1950)

Col. Arthur H. Muenchow, age 46, principal of Blaine School in Milwaukee for a year and inspector general of the 32nd Division for four years, died Sunday at his home in Milwaukee after a heart attack.

A native of Spring Valley, Wis., he attended Eau Claire Teachers College and Marquette University. He was a school instructor in Colby and Greenwood, Wis., before moving to Milwaukee in 1930. He taught at Wisconsin Av., Garden Homes and Neskara Schools before becoming principal of Blaine a year ago.

Col. Muenchow served in the South Pacific with the 3rd amphibious brigade in World War II. He was a member of the Cudworth Legion Post, The Colby Lodge F. & A.M., and the Milwaukee Ascension Lutheran church.

Surviving are his wife, Viola, his mother, Alvina of Eau Claire, four sisters, Miss Dahla Muenchow, Mrs. Ernest Williams, Mrs. Allen Sannes, all of Eau Claire and Mrs. Norman Lenz of Chicago, and one brother, George of Minneapolis.

Funeral services were held at Milwaukee Wednesday afternoon at the Harder Chapel and burial was made in the Wisconsin Memorial Park.

Mr. Muenchow will be remembered by many as a man with a congenial disposition, a just and upright citizen, a kind husband, honorable in all his dealings, a courteous and obliging neighbor and a man who always endeavored to perform every duty - to his God, his country, his family, his neighbor and himself.
