Professor Carver lived in Denver for several years after his time in Bloomsburg, serving for a year as the superintendent of the Denver School System in the 1870s. For much of his time in Denver he lived with his oldest daughter Sarah and her husband, Hiram G. Wolff, in their home in the Highland neighborhood.
Bloomsburg University’s first president, Henry Carver, died in Denver, Colorado, in 1889. He is buried in an unmarked grave at Riverside Cemetery in Denver. The Bloomsburg University Alumni Association and the Friends of the BU Library are donating a headstone for Carver’s grave to commemorate his legacy.
On August 22nd, 2009 at 2:15pm the Bloomsburg Alumni Association will be dedicating a monument to Professor Carver at Riverside (Block 4, Lot 73). For more about the luncheon, presentation, and dedication, visit the Bloomsburg Alumni Website.
