    Notes 
    • Sanford was born at 927 Jackson St. His family moved to 188 (928) Chatham when he was about one year old. He attended Sibley Elementary School. Sanford graduated from Union High School in Grand Rapids,Kent Co,Michigan, class of 1916. He graduated Associate Honor Student in the Commercial Group and on the "Aurora" editorial staff. He was also a member of the Glee Club, Commercial Club, Athletic Association, German Club and Forensic Debating Society. Among Sanford's classmates was one Fridolf Daniel Ahlberg, a cousin of Sanford's future bride, Eva Allen.
      He was confirmed on June 8, 1913 and in 1917 Sanford joined the Swedish Mission Church. October 1, 1918, Sanford enlisted in the Military (Student Training Corps at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor) but was discharged about two months later when the War ended. A newspaper article with picture (date unknown) notifies that "Congressman Mapes Has New Secretary", Sanford Carlson, 1312 Shawmut St (Lake Michigan Dr), is Congressman Carl E. Mapes' new private secretary. Carlson has gone to Washington to take up his duties under Mr. Mapes. He succeeds Harry Allen who, like all Congressman Mapes' secretaries,..." Sanford remembered a story about how Congressman Mapes was invited for an airplane ride by the Curtis Airplane Co. and didn't want to go. Sanford was invited to go in his place. So, in 1919 Sanford took a flight in a Curtis Biplane over Washington DC. In 1922 Sanford's occupation is listed as Real Estate Sales with Kinsey and Buys Real Estate. Sanford told of a particular day which he had sold a property and in the excitement of the sale was speeding south on Ottawa Street heading back to his office. A policeman stopped him and ticketed him for going 25 mph in a 15 mph zone.
