He was a lifelong resident and a long-time participant in the civic and political life of Richmond. Raised in Ginter Park, where he attended public schools, his devotion to that place and era were fondly and frequently recalled. After graduation from Thomas Jefferson High School in 1944, he joined the U.S. Army and served in Italy in the First Armored Division until the end of the European conflict. Upon his return, he entered R.P.I. (V.C.U) and the University of Richmond night school and began his mortgage banking career at Richmond Federal Savings and Loan. Later he moved to State Planters Bank (United Virginia Bank), where he established and was President of the United Virginia Mortgage Corporation and served as the Chairman of the Virginia Mortgage Bankers Association.
Subsequently, he left to become the President and CEO of the Metropolitan Richmond Chamber of Commerce and served as head of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s committee of chamber executives from the nation’s 25 largest cities. He later moved to Wheat First Securities in the Office of the Chairman.
Always interested in Richmond’s future, Carlton was involved in multiple civic projects. He was recognized by the Jaycee’s in 1960 and was the recipient of the “Young Man of the Year" award. In 1975 he received the Richmond First Club's “Good Government” award. He was Chairman of Richmond Forward, Central Richmond Association and Richmond's City Planning Commission.
In later years Richmond's history and historic preservation were a special interest. After serving on the Executive Committee of Historic Richmond Foundation, he was the Chairman of the Board of The Confederate Museum, the home at 1201 E. Clay St. that was the 1858 birthplace of his grandmother, Kathleen Crenshaw.
Memberships included The Commonwealth Club, The Country Club of Virginia, the Westmoreland Club, and the Richmond German. He was a former vestryman at St. James's Episcopal Church, 1205 W. Franklin Street, where a memorial service will be held on Tuesday October 4, 2022, at 11 a.m., following a family graveside service.
Any memorial contributions could be directed to Historic Richmond or St. James's Episcopal Church.
