Carver, E. S., commercial department, high school, Thibodaux, La., was born at
Denison, Tex., March 9, 1877; son of W. G. T. and Cecilia (Sigur) Carver, the
former of whom was born in Virginia and has been connected with newspaper work
throughout the greater part of his life.  The mother was born in Louisiana and
her parents reside in New Orleans.  E. S. Carver attended the public schools
of New Orleans and the Holy Trinity private school.  In 1893 he entered
Jefferson college, Convent, La., from which he graduated with the degree of A.
B. in 1899.  During the ensuing 5 years he was a teacher at Jefferson college,
the greater part of this time in the commercial department.  In 1904 he became
principal of the graded school at Labadieville, La., where he remained until
1908, when he was chosen as principal of Thibodaux college, Thibodaux, La.,
and continued to be identified with this institution until 1912, at which time
he accepted charge of the commercial department of the Thibodaux high school,
with which he has since remained in the capacity indicated.  In Oct., 1904,
Prof. Carver was married to Miss Threse Capella, a daughter of M. Capella, of
Thibodaux, and to them 3 sons have been born, namely:  Edward,  Cecil and 
Preston.  Prof. Carver is allied with the Democratic party, and is a member of
the Roman Catholic church.  He is also affiliated with the Knights of Columbus
and with the Louisiana State Teachers' association.  As a teacher, his work
has been almost entirely along the line of commercial instruction, and many of
his pupils are now filling responsible and remunerative positions, it is said,
and are generally found to be so well grounded in the knowledge required of
commercial usage in practical business as to reasonably insure their continued
advance to success.
