Gardner W. Carr, vice president and director of Boeing Aircraft and Boeing Airplane companies and for many years prominent in Seattle activities, today tendered his resignation to accept a position as vice president and general manager of the Glenn L. Martin Company, Baltimore.  He said he expected to leave next Monday to take over his new duties.
Carr has been associated with the Boeing Company since 1924 starting as production engineer and rising to positions of high responsibility.  He became purchasing agent in 1926, assistant to the president in 1928, plant manager in 1931, vice president in charge of manufacturing in 1933, and has been a vice president and director of both Boeing Aircraft Company and its parent firm, the Boeing Airplane Company, since September, 1934.
"The Boeing Company has been my life and almost my sole thought for twelve years," Carr commented today.  "It is with the very deepest regret that I am severing connections of such long standing, but no man can turn his back on opportunity."
C. N. Monteith, executive vice president of the Boeing Company, expressed the company's sincere regret at seeing Carr leave.  "We wish him all possible success in the new position," Monteith said.
Only last Saturday Carr was elected vice president of the Seattle Chamber of Commerce.  In addition he is a member of the board of governors of the Washington Athletic Club, the Rotary Club of Seattle and the Broadmoor Golf Club.  His home is at 3703 Cascadia Ave. where Mrs. Carr and their daughter, Annabelle, 8 years old, plan to remain a short while before moving to their new home in Baltimore.
