184. Dr. Carl T.6 RAUCH
(Laura Fidelia5 STEWART, Mary Elizabeth4 HILLARD, Henry J.3 HILLARD, Thomas Jefferson2 HILLARD, Richmond A.1 HILLARD). Carl was a track star. He set the Cadillac High School record in the 880
yd run in 1937, running the race in 2 minutes and 1 second. His record stood
until around 1990. He went to Western Michigan University on a track scholarship
and ran on their track team also. He never lost an 880 yd run that he entered
either in high school or in college. In spite of this, when he married during
his sophomore year at Western Michigan University, the coach, fearing it would
taint the others on the track team to have a married man on the team, kicked
him off the team. That certainly is difficult to understand in light of the way
athletes are treated today. Over 60 years after setting the Cadillac High School
record in the 880 yd run, he was inducted into the Cadillac High School Sports
Hall of Fame.
He was married to Freda ANDERSON (daughter of Adolph
ANDERSON and Emma SMITH). Freda
ANDERSON was born on 6 JUL 1920 in Wexford Co., Michigan. She was born in
or near Cadillac. She died on 10 NOV 1985 in Lake City, Columbia Co., Florida.
Dr. Carl T. RAUCH and Freda ANDERSON had the following children:
Olwyn May GATEHOUSE resided in 1943 in Australia.
She believes her surname was originally Gutehaus and that her grandfather changed
it to Gatehouse. Olwyn May and Carl met while he was stationed in the Pacific
during World War II.
