Woolford, Henry E. (Killed in Action – 1918)
Green Bay – Lieut. Henry E. Woolford, Green Bay officer, died of wounds received while leading his men of the One Hundred Second Infantry into action, according to information received by his brother, W.B. Woolford, from a chaplain who was with the young man at his death. Lieut. Woolford faced a battery of German machine gunners and was wounded. “He died gallantly after showing more than average nerve,” said the chaplain in his letter. Lieut. Woolford was an amateur ball player of considerable ability a few years ago. A widow and two babes survive him.
