Arthur William Carr was born at Mickleham in Surrey in 1893. He was educated at Hazelwood, Eton and Sherborne Schools. The Sherborne school magazine wrote the following of his cricketing abilities in 1904 'Very good all round for his size, but too small to be much use yet' and in 1905 'For his inches would be quite in the 1st class; with a little more head, but at present is addicted to strokes that mean certain death. Is too small yet to do justice to his undoubted bowling talent. A fine field anywhere' and in 1906 'As Captain, keen and energetic in the field, but should learn to discriminate between slackness and un-skilfulness in others. As a batsman, has had no superior here, possessing every stroke a boy of his age ought to have, his driving being perhaps his strongest point. His bowling hardly increased as much in accuracy as in pace. A beautiful field anywhere, from wicket keeper outwards'. On leaving the school the magazine wrote of him: - '...has also been suddenly called to Eton. In him Hazelwood loses a sportsman second to none, and his future will be looked upon with eager interest' He went on to Eton College where he was in Mr. J.H.M. Hare's House from September 1906 to July 1907 when he was asked to leave so went instead to Sherbourne School from September 1907 to July 1911. He was a member of the Cricket XI from 1909 to 1911, scoring over 1,000 runs in the 1909 season alone. He also played for Nottinghamshire County Cricket Club 2nd XI in 1909. The Sherborne School magazine wrote the following of his 1910 cricket season 'Very good bat, with any number of good shots, his best being his drive, which is very powerful. His fault is his great recklessness, getting himself out by treating full tosses and long hops too carelessly. A good field anywhere, at his best in the slips. A useful fast bowler, but cannot last long'. In 1910 he represented the Public Schools XI in the match against the MCC at Lords. On leaving school he made his first class debut for Nottinghamshire against Derbyshire at the age of 17, in the same season, scoring 1,800 runs but did not score his first century for the club until 1913 and he played football for Leicester City [Rugby] Football Club in 1912. His war-time service saw him involved at Mons as a 2nd Lieutenant and his regiment were involved in the long retreat from Mons where they acted as a rearguard to the retreating British Expeditionary Force. He was wounded and invalided home for four months during 1915, returning to the front at the end of the year and was mentioned in despatches. He was still serving with his regiment at the armistice in November 1918.

Carr was named captain of England for the Ashes series against Australia in 1926. In the third Test at Leeds, he controversially put Australia into bat after winning the toss, and dropped Charlie Macartney at slip in the first over of the match. Macartney went on to score a hundred before lunch and England was lucky to avoid defeat. He came down with tonsillitis during the fourth Test of the series, and although he recovered in time for the fifth Test, he was replaced as captain by Percy Chapman. He was bitterly disappointed with this decision, and although he captained England twice more in his final two Tests against South Africa in 1929, henceforth he put most of his effort into captaining Nottinghamshire into a dominant position within the English County cricket competition. He became a test selector during the 1927 season. In 1930 and in the following years, Carr was instrumental in developing the €œbodyline" bowling tactic together with future England captain Douglas Jardine and the two Nottinghamshire fast bowlers Harold Larwood and Bill Voce. Carr used the tactic of instructing his bowlers to aim at the bodies of batsmen and placing a close set field on the leg side to take catches fended away from the body with the bat and perfected it as he led Nottinghamshire to success in the county competition. Jardine then used Larwood and Voce in similar fashion on the infamous 1932-33 English tour of Australia, resulting in several injuries to Australian batsmen and the incurring the wrath of the Australian public. After this tour, and the subsequent fallout, Carr was subjected to bodyline bowling by other English county teams, and was severely shaken by several balls that nearly hit him on the head. He later denounced the tactic he had helped develop as unfair. Dissension within the Nottinghamshire club over his role in the bodyline scandal led him being sacked as captain in 1934, and he never played first-class cricket again.

In all, he played 11 times for England with a batting average of 19.75. He also wrote a book, 'Cricket with the Lid Off' with a preface by Douglas Jardine which was published in 1935. In his first class career he scored 21,100 runs including 45 centuries at an average of 31.58 and took 318 catches.

More. [Middlesex 1901-1910] The team would start early in January and return about April the 6th. The team would be put up in the West Indies, and so the expenses would be limited to the voyage, tips etc. An attempt will be made by us to defray part of the expenses of the voyage, but this may not be possible. As a maximum, the expenses of each amateur would not exceed £60. I shall be obliged if you will inform me if I may submit your name to the committee of M.C.C. as being willing to accompany the side'.
