Lane Street Project: Walter M. Foster.

Walter M. Foster‘s headstone in Odd Fellows Cemetery is a beautiful example of Clarence Best‘s early work — the white marble; the incised laurel leaves; the charming irregularity of his fonts.

Foster’s foot marker was carved by a different hand. His membership in the Odd Fellows lodge is signaled by the three linked rings marked F-L-T — friendship, love, truth.
