Clayton County Register, Thur., 30 Aug. 1934.

Darwin Anway, 18, was almost instantly killed when a 150 Lb. rock fell on his right shoulder in a quarry near Osborne at 11:10 yesterday forenoon.

Anway was a member of C.C.C. Co. 781, located at the Backbone State Park near Lamont. He, with several other camp boys, was working in the Osborne quarry quarrying rock for use in the Backbone Park. The rock fell a distance of about 15 feet striking him on his right shoulder and then glanced to the right side of his head, fracturing the neck.

He was brought to the office of Dr. W. J. McGrath at once, but he was dead before his arrival, according to Dr. McGrath.

Anway was the son of W. A. Anway of Cedar Falls. The deceased's body was prepared and removed to 1224 West 1st Street, Cedar Falls, for burial.
