Walter Wesley Foskett  



They are not on the 1930 list of cottagers published by the Culver Citizen, but by 1936 they were either renting or had owned the cottage.

The Duke & Dutchess of Windsor spent 10 days incognito in the guest house. Shortly after the duke's abdication from the throne. The Duke had abdicated in 1936 following his marriage to Wallis. His family had given him the post as governor of the Bahamas in 1940, which he viewed as exile. At that time the islands that comprised the Bahamas were undeveloped, but the Duke was planning to build a resort in the Out Islands, along with his Bahamian associates. While he was stationed there his activities were closely monitored by the FBI, as well as by the British, who felt he was pro-Nazi and a threat to the war effort. The Americans were concerned because they intended to build a naval station at Andros Island, not far from where the Duke was meeting with his pro-Nazi friends.

The Windsor's were personal friends of the Foskett's through Sir Harry Oaks of Nassau.

Walter W. Foskett was born in Royal Center, Indiana in 1885, and grew up in Logansport, the son of a Pennsylvania railroad engineer. He began attending Indiana Univeristy Law School and forced to drop out for financial reasons after two years. After working for a year as a railroad clerk earning $65 a month, he was able to return to school and graduated in 1907. He accepted a position in a Logansport law firm after a brief period in Seattle. Later he established his own practice and served one term as the Logansport city attorney. In 1922, Mr. Foskett moved to Miami Beach, Florida and together with longtime friend, Bert Winter, established the law firm of Winter Foskett which continued for many years. The emphasis of his law practice was estates and trusts.

Walter Foskett, who acted as the Duke's American attorney while he was governor of the Bahamas. Foskett was also in 1934 became Sir Harry Oakes's attorney (who owned the second largest mining company in Canada, and was murdered the night of 7 July or early morning of 8 July 1943); Harold Christie (former bootlegger), members of a consortium (called Tesden Corporation) suspected of "shady dealings" in the U.S. and Caribbean, and Sir Kerry Cakes of Nassau. Foskett was also a director of Alleghany Corporation.

    Wolf Construction Company crews Thursday began razing the two-story building at 418 E. Broadway that formerly housed the Moore's Store, gutted by fire last January.

    The building is owned by the Bertha Foskett estate.

John Foskett described his father as "still a Hoosier, an unpretentious man, proud of his small-town heritage." His greatest affection outside of his family and his career, he said, was reserved for his fraternity and his alma mater which gave him his first understanding of what was possible wit hard work.

The Walter W. Foskett Professorship was established in 1970 when Mr. Foskett was 85 years old at the Indiana University School of Law. He died in 1973 at the age of 87.

        Bronze Star Star to Honor Husband of Former local Woman

        On Thursday, September 11, Joseph C. Creamer will be officially awarded the Bronze Star with Oak Leaf Cluster at a parade; being held in his honor at Fort Huachuca, Arizona.

        The award is being made to Crdamer by the post commander, 1 Colonel David Dunne. Colonel Dunne will be assisted by Congressman Harold A. Patton, long time friend of both Mr. and Mrs. Creamer.

        Lieut. General Jacob L, Devers, commanding genera! of the Sixth Army Group awarded the Bronze Star with one Oak Leaf Cluster to Joseph C. Creamer during World War II for bravery beyond the call of duty. The citation says:

        "The medal was awarded for heroic achievement near Borgo Piave, Italy, on March 4, 1944; when his company was assigned the mission of destroying two enemy held houses being, used as observation posts, Sergeant Creamer, in charge of a light machine gun crew was given the task of delivering protective fire for the night assa ult. Although painfully wounded in the attack by mortar, shell Sgt. Creamer fearlessly and stubbornly continued to deliver such a heavy concentration of fire that his position drew much of the enemy return fire, thus allowing the company to accomplish its mission. By devotion to duty, Sgt. Creamer reflects much credit upon himself and upon the United States Army."
