BRAINARD Truman Brainard- Albany Township Man is Shot While Hunting for Deer- Truman Brainard 37, of Albany township, a WPA worker, is in a critical condition at the Robert Packer hospital, shot through the lungs by a bullet from a 30-40 rifle while deer hunting in the vicinity of Kellogg about 11 o’clock Friday morning. The shot which struck Brainard was fired by his brother-in-law, Glen Lee, 27 also of Albany township.  The two were members of a party of 12 who had been hunting for several hours.  They had been spread out for a drive, being about 200 feet apart.  Just before the accident, a buck came bounding toward the watchers and Brainard fired and missed.  The buck continued on toward Lee who also took a shot.  He, too, missed, and the bullet went on to strike Brainard, who had left the position at which he had been stationed. Members of the party carried the wounded man for two miles before they could reach the highway.  Then he was taken to the hospital in an automobile by Charles Harding of Athens and Perley Lee, one of the victim’s brothers.  They reached the hospital about 2 o’clock. Glen Lee, after the accident came to Towanda and reported to Corporal Charles Santee of the Motor Police, telling him his version of the affair.  He said that Brainard had left his position on the watch without divulging his movements to other members of the party and that this is what caused the tragedy. Game Protector Rodman Case and County Detective Fowler Tuton will continue the investigation today. This is the first deer hunting accident in the county since the season opened Monday. Others in the party included Walter Lee, another of Glen’s brothers.  Glen is single and lives with his father, Leslie Lee. Brainard had been hunting Monday and Tuesday with his friends.  On Wednesday and Thursday he worked with the WPA, and resumed his hunting yesterday. (Daily Review, Towanda, PA., Saturday Morning, December 4, 1937)  Note:  Perley Lee was his brother in law, not brother, and Glen Lee lives with father Ulysses not Leslie.

Mr. Brainard was hunting with a group of friends in the woods near Kelloggs when he was struck in the abdomen by a shot from the gun of his brother-in-law, Glenn Lee, also of Albany township.  The bullet zipped upward and penetrated the lungs.  The wounded man was carried two miles to the highway and then taken in an automobile to the hospital.  His condition was considered hopeless from the start. Game Protector Rodman Case and County Detective Fowler Tuton on Saturday investigated the accident, going out to the scene of the shooting.  After this “on-the-grounds” examination, Mr. Case stated that the shooting was accidental and that no prosecution would be started against Lee.  He declared that Lee had fired at a deer, the bullet going about two feet under the deer’s body and striking a tree a foot from the ground.  When it struck the tree, the bullet exploded, Mr. Case said, and one of the pieces ricocheted, striking Mr. Brainard who was “on the watch” some distance away.
