Today, we'd like to introduce our readers to Alwin Carus.
Alwin was the last family member to live in the Hegeler Carus Mansion. He is also the person to live in the mansion for the longest period of time.
Alwin was the youngest child of Mary Hegeler Carus and Paul Carus. He was born in the Mansion on November 20, 1901 and he passed away in the Mansion on November 8, 2004-Just 12 days shy of his 103rd birthday.
Alwin's memories of his grandparents, Edward and Camilla, who commissioned the construction of the Mansion as well as his memory of family stories help our docents to interperet the house for our guests to this day.
He was also a benefactor for many orgaizations locally and worldwide.
