GENERAL H.W. BUTNER, WAR VETERAN, DEAD
Former Commander of Army's Panama Department--West Point Graduate in 1898
DECORATED BY FRANCE
Received Croix de Guerre -- U.S. Gave Him Distinguished Service Medal and Silver Star

WASHINGTON, March 13-- Major Gen. Henry W. Butner, U.S.A., who recently was transferred from the
command of the Panama Canal Department to the Army Group in the War Department, died in Walter
Reed General hospital today at the age of 61.

During the World War General Butner served with the Sixteenth Field Artillery o the Vesle front, at St.
Mihiel and in the Meuse-Argonne.  On Oct 1, 1918, he was placed in command of the First Field Artillery
Brigade, and after the Armistice was ordered to the Coblenz Bridgehead, remaining in Germany until
May 26, 1919, when he returned to the United States.

For his World War services he received the Distinguished Service Medal, the Silver Star citation for
distinguished conduct during operations at Mouzen and the advance on Sedan, and the French Croix de
Buerre, with palm.

Born in Pinnacle, N.C. on April 6, 1875, he was graduated from the Military Academy in 1898 and
commissioned in  the artillery.  He was promoted through the various grades to major general, on Feb 1,
1936.

As a young officer  he served at various posts in the United States and the Philippines, from 1901 to
1902 commanding the 122d Company of Coast Artillery at Fort Columbus, N.Y.  When the United States
entered the World War he was stationed in Hawaii but soon was ordered to the Sixteenth Field Artillery,
which was then in the United States.

For several years after the war he commanded various artillery regiments in this country and the
Philippines.  In 1920-22 he was assistant commandant of the Field Artillery School at Fort Sill, Okla., and
in 1934-36 commandant of that school.  In 1930-32 he commanded the Eleventh Field Artillery Brigade
at Schofield Barracks, Hawaii, and until 1934 the Third Field Artillery Brigade at Fort Lewis, Wash.  
Later, at Fort Sill, he commanded the Fourth Field Artillery Brigade and in July, 1936, was assigned to
command the Panama Canal Department.

He was a graduate of the Staff College, the School of Fire, the Army War College and the Coast Artillery
School.

A brother, Arthur L. Butner of Winston-Salem, N.C. survives.
