William H. Curtis Dead. Fifteen Years a Member of White House Police Squad. William H. Curtis, who had served on the police squad at the White House since October 31, 1902, was found dead in bed at his home, 1231 H Street, Northeast, yesterday morning. He had not been well during the past year and had been much worse since the death of his wife two months ago. His duties at the White House up to about ten months ago brought him in contact with the several Presidents.
The deceased was born in North Carolina, near Asheville, February 18, 1860. He served in the United States Army prior to his appointment to the police force, May 16, 1888. While on the force he served in several precincts, and accepted a detail at the White House rather than a promotion. He was a Bible student, friends say, and spent much of his spare time in that study. Mr. Curtis is survived by nine children . All are single and resided at the family home. He belonged to no organizations other than the Policemen’s Association. His body will be taken to North Carolina, where his wife’s body is interred.9
