  • Notes 
    • Donald D. Schulz was born in Cleveland, Ohio, but later his family moved to Bethlehem, Pennsylvania where he attended Moravian Preparatory School. After school, Donald Schulz served his country as second lieutenant in the U.S. Army from October 1, 1918 to January 15, 1919 during World War I. Then he attended Lehigh University where he played for the all-American champion lacrosse team and was a member of Phi Gamma Delta. After graduating from Lehigh, Donald married Irene Frances Shillington on September 26, 1926 in the Moravian Chapel in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. During the earlier years of his marriage, Donald traveled a lot for his job to train others to run the equipment in new electrical power plants for the Foster-Wheeler Company. Then he became the power plant superintendent for the Scranton Electric Company in Scranton, Pennsylvania for twenty-five years and at the end of his career, the superintendent of the Brunner Island plant of the Pennsylvania Power and Ligh
      t Company in York, Pennsylvania. When Donald and Irene Schulz moved to York, Pennsylvania they joined a Presbyterian church because there were no Moravian churches in the area. The couple was very involved in their church in York and Donald served as a deacon there. Donald died of colon cancer on June 7, 1974 in York, Pennsylvania.
