Arthur B. Carton received a Bachelor of Arts degree from St. John’s College in 1925, and graduated from St. John’s School of Law in 1928. He was the secretary of his freshman class, an editor of the student publication Red and White, a member of the Joyce Kilmer Fraternity, and the manager of the St. John’s College baseball team (1922-1923) and football team (1923). He was actively involved in the Alumni Association for many years.

This collection is comprised primarily of St. John’s sports memorabilia, along with a few class registration cards and academic schedules. The baseball scrapbook contains newspaper clippings about the St. John’s baseball team, some memorabilia, and letterheads mainly from colleges and universities. There is a miniature football-shaped charm inscribed, “St. J. 13 Fordham 0 / Arthur B. Carton MGR / 1923” which he received as the manager of the first entirely St. John’s College football team (without St. John’s Prep students).
