     Charles Arthur F. Davidson was born on 1 August 1883 in Louisville, Jefferson County, Kentucky. His parents were Joseph T. Davidson and Mary E. Davis according to his May 1939 Social Security application.5,6,4,7

     Charles registered for the draft on 12 September 1918 at Rock Island County, Illinois. He was 35 years of age and is described as of medium height, slender build with blue eyes and brown hair. His occupation was Inspector, Motor transport Corp. in Moline, Illinois.

     Due to a need for men to serve during World War I, the United States instituted a draft. Obviously, not everyone who was registered for the draft was drafted or served in the military.

     With no end in sight for the end of World War I, a third and final registration law was instituted which now included all men between the ages of 18 and 45 which added younger men that the previous registrations laws and an older group of men born between 1873 and 1900, meaning he had to register.5

     Charles, 39, married Frances Ellen Rives, daughter of Stephen Edward Rives and Annie Pendleton, on 3 May 1923 in Cook County, Illinois.1,2

     Charles registered for the draft in 1942 at Chicago, Cook County, Illinois. He was 58 years of a and his employer was the City of Chicago where he was employed in the Bureau of Eng. Const. Division. No description of him is provided on the card.

     The Selective Training and Service Act of 1940, also known as the Burke–Wadsworth Act, enacted September 16, 1940, was the first peacetime conscription in United States history. The Selective Service Act required that men who had reached their 21st birthday but had not yet reached their 36th birthday register with local draft boards. Later, when the U.S. entered World War II after Pearl Harbor, all men from their 18th birthday until the day before their 45th birthday were made subject to military service, and all men from their 18th birthday until the day before their 65th birthday were required to register.8

     Charles Arthur F. Davidson died on 4 July 1961 at age 77 in Los Angeles County, California.9
