Description Carr Futures business card for Damian Meehan. The business card identifies Damian Meehan as Assistant Vice President at Carr Futures Inc. at One World Trade Center.
Historical Notes Raised in Manhattan’s Inwood area, Damian Meehan lived in Glen Rock, New Jersey, with his wife, Joann—who was pregnant—and their young son. One of nine children, Damian often recruited his siblings to compete with him in races or to play a round of golf. Damian worked as a trader at Carr Futures. On September 11, he was in his office on the North Tower’s 92nd floor. He was 32 years old.
Curator's Comment Business cards were ubiquitous survivors of the 9/11 attacks. Most of those in the Museum’s collection were found in recovered wallets and pocketbooks or retrieved from the paper debris that fell from the towers. Their variety is indicative of the multiplicity of companies and activities anchored at the World Trade Center.
Victims’ relatives and employees of businesses formerly located at the World Trade Center have also donated pristine business cards found at home or in jacket pockets after September 11, 2001. Such cards were often retained as souvenirs of the destroyed landmark or as evidence that placed loved ones at the World Trade Center. Business cards tied to passengers aboard the hijacked aircrafts were also found at the World Trade Center, the Pentagon crash site, and in the impact area of Flight 93 near Shanksville, Pennsylvania.
