Since his graduation Mr. Carter has held the positions of graduate-secretary of Phillips Brooks House, foreign secretary of the University Christian Association in India, and general secretary for North America of the International Committee of the Students' Y.

The work in India, where he has spent eight years, is of a varied nature, having to do with universities, cities, and railroads not only in India proper, but in Ceylon and Burmah as well.
