Obituary

Carlos Wilson, 65, who died at his home at 209 West Springfield Street, Boston, Monday, was a native of Bradford, Vermont. He was engaged in the commission business in Boston a large part of his life.

In his early manhood he became interested in the history of Napoleon, and said at that time, if he could get together 150 volumes about the great Corsican he should consider his library complete. His collection grew rapidly, and for 20 years, or more, he had been noted as a collector of Napoleana, and was looked to as an authority of the life and times of Napoleon. From every part of the civilized world he gradually brought together over 200 selected volumes on his favorite subject, with 9,000 portraits and prints, books, and pamphlets, many rare relics, and the first private collection of Napoleonic coins in America, if not in the world.
