Biography

Carl Klose began rowing in 1916 with the Penn Barge Club but was called away by World War I, during which time he served in the ambulance corps. He only returned to rowing three months before the Antwerp Olympics, but partnered the Federschmidt brothers, Erich and Franz, and Ken Myers to a silver medal in the four. Klose later worked as a traveling salesman. He registered for the draft for World War II, but did not see combat as he was then over 50-years-old.
