Oscar Ellis Everett. - Perhaps one of the best known young men of Columbus is Oscar Ellis Everett, who is assistant
librarian of the Supreme Court Law Library. He is a native of North Carolina, born July 2, 1901, the son of William
Clayburn and Doshia (Bruce) Everett.
Oscar Ellis Everett received his education in the public schools of Andrews, N. C. He enlisted in the U. S. Army
in 1920. He was assigned to the 6th Field Signal Battalion at Camp Grant, Ill., and was later transferred to the
13th Service Company at Camp Alfred Vail, N. J., where he attended a signal school as a student in radio engineering.
He was later sent as a radio specialist to the 18th Service Company, Fort Benjamin Harrison, Indiana, and subsequently
was transferred to Fort Hayes at Columbus where he was discharged August 30, 1923. Mr. Everett then became identified
with the Columbus Railway Power & Light Company as an illuminating engineer, and served in that capacity until
1925, at which time he entered the sales department of the Western Auto Supply Company. Mr. Everett later was with
the engineering department of the Ohio Bell Telephone Company, and in 1927 was appointed assistant librarian of
the Supreme Court Library. He enrolled in the Columbus College of Law during that year, and is still a student
at that institution.
In 1927 Mr. Everett took the examination for a commission in the Officers Reserve Corps and received the rank of
second lieutenant in the Signal Corps, attached to the 5th Corps Area Headquarters.
In 1925 Mr. Everett married Miss Helen B. Taylor, the daughter of E. Bert and Reta M. (Allen) Taylor. A sketch
of Mr. Taylor appears elsewhere in this history.
Politically, Mr. Everett has always been a Republican. He is a member of Columbus Lodge No. 30, Free and Accepted
Masons, and Iota Lambda Pi legal fraternity. He also belongs to the Franklin County Reserve Officers Association,
Ohio State Reserve Officers Association, and Officers Reserve Association of the United States.
