Family of Walter Broad VEAZIE and Hazel L MILNER
Walter Broad VEAZIE b. 1892 Nov 3645 at Topeka, KS645. d. 1965 Mar 23840. bd. Crown Hill Cem., Wheat Ridge, CO840.
Hazel L MILNER b. 1894~4999 at Iowa2681. d. aft 19405001.
Married4999 1925 Jun 264999 at Boulder Co., CO4999.
In 1900 and 1910, Walter was living with his parents. Walter's full name is given in his 1914 passport645 application. At the time, his residence was New York City and he was a student. In June, 1917, he was single, still in New York and a teacher221 at Columbia University.
Walter married4996 Orpha Dee Crawford, Jul 21, 1917, in Franklin, PA. The next year, Walter, of 530 W 123 St, NY, NY, was inducted4204 into the U S Army, NY Div 135, Mar 18, 1918, at the age of 25, became a Corporal on Jun 5, 1918, and was transferred to Camp Hancock, GA, where he was honorably discharged Nov 6, 1918.
In 1919, Walter Broad Veazie is listed2396 as a Second Lieutenant in the Officers' Reserve Corp of the US Army, address New York University, NY. In 1920, he, Orpha and his 3 sons were living in Queens and he was an assistant professor of natural history.
Walter married Hazel M Milner in 1925. Walter and Hazel M Veazie were divorced4202, Jan 3, 1930, Boulder, CO.
In 1930, he is listed2394 in the census (enumerated April 18) as a widower, living in North Boulder, CO, a professor at the University of Colorado.
www.e-yearbook.com, University of Colorado (Boulder, CO), Class of 1944, lists Walter B Veazie, Head of the Department of Philosophy, "erudite in many fields of the arts and sciences." That reference states he had been of the University faculty since 1923, received both his B.A. and Ph.L. from the University of Columbia. In 1940, still a university professor residing in North Boulder, he was married to Eunice, and 2 of his sons, Walter and Ralph, and daughter Enid, are residing there. Unsourced cemetery information840 has Walter and Eunice married in June, 1929. That seems unlikely as Eunice didn't appear in the 1930 census, and Walter is listed that year as widowed. The Review of Metaphysics, Vol 16, Iss 3, Mar 1963, lists (secure.pdcnet.org) Walter as Professor Emeritus of Philosophy of the University of Colorado, retired in 1961. A general search, both publications and newspapers, will yield several references to his rather eclectic academic career and publications in the field of philosophy.
Following Hazel's divorce from Walter Veazie, sadly, Hazel Veazie, divorced, was listed2681 in 1930 in the Mount Airy (mental health) institution in Denver, CO. In 1940, Hazel Milner, divorced and apparently having changed her name, was an inmate5001 in the Colorado State Hospital in Pueblo, CO.
Hazel may be the Hazel L Milner listed in the 1900 census for Taylor, Iowa, daughter of Maggie M Milner. Hazel's birthdate is listed as Jan (or Jun?) 1894.
