Known to his family and friends as "Bud," Charles Allen Tracy was the adventurous one in the Tracy family because of his love of flying. Bud was also quite a ladies man and would never marry. Tracy worked as a clerk for the Pellet Magneto Company during the latter half of World War I and by 1920 was working as a driver for the U.S. Auto Supply Company. By 1921 he began working as a clerk for the Chicago Board of Trade, a position he held for the rest of his life. He was of medium height, had grey eyes and had dark brown hair. Like his younger brother, Charles A. Tracy's life would become short lived due to the debilitating disease of tuberculosis and eventual death at the young age of 34. This then is a tribute to the life and times of Charles Allen (Bud) Tracy.
