Fred Worcester Henshaw1,3,4,5,6,7 [Frederick Worcester Henshaw8].
Born Oct 3 1898, Michigan.4,5,6,7,8 Fred and sister Ruth were twins.1
He was always known only as "Fred", both within the family as well as professionally. However he is listed in a Library of Congress catalog as "Frederick". It is not known if this might have been his actual given name (no birth certificate has been located for him), but his son Dan believes the Library of Congress listing is in error.1
Fred's middle name came about because his great grandfather on his mother's side was Dr. Jonathan Fox Worcester from Salem, Massachusetts. That line goes back to the ministers named Worcester who served the First Congregational Church in Salem.1
Fred grew up in Grandville, Kent County, Michigan.1 He was president of his senior class (1921) at Michigan State College (now Michigan State University).1
He married Dorothy Marian Maxson.1
Fred was a journalist with the Detroit News (1923-1928), "Magazine of Michigan" (1929-1933), Division of Information, Agricultural Adjustment Administration (1933-1938).8
After leaving the Dept. of Agriculture, Fred served on the board of editors of "U.S. News and World Report" magazine.1 He was a member of the National Press Club in Washington, D.C. and he conducted many interviews with presidents, generals, and other dignitaries.1
Fred Worcester Henshaw died Aug 1 1953, Los Angeles County, California.4,8 Fred's obituary appeared Aug 4 1953 in the "Grand Rapids Press" (Grand Rapids, Michigan).9
