He served as president of the Kentucky Society of the Sons of the American Revolution, and also as chairman of the tennis committee of the Pastime Boat Club. He was a member of the Filson Club, the Optimist Club and the Dale Carnegie Club. He married Lorene Doris Knobloch on July 29,1932. They had no children.
