Onp year a? today, on the 31st of July, 191!), a proup of
about twonty-tivo enthusiastic ex-service men assembled in
Carson City for the purpose of organizing a post of The Ameri
can Legion in Ormsby county. J. (. Serugham. then tempor
ary state chairman, gave his earnest endeavors to the matter
in order that a strong post might lie established in this city.
As a result, a working nucleus was accomplished, and officers
chosen for the remainder of the year. These were IT. M. Payne,
chairman; .1. M. Kane, vice chairman; F. B. Warren, secre
tary, and C. P. Ileidenger, treasurer.
The young post wont to work with a will, perfecting its
organization, strengthening its ranks, and engaging itself ac
tively in civic and national activities. Several social affairs
were also conducted, among which was the joint celebration,
with the Greater Carson Club, of Armistice Day anniversary.
At the first state convention, held in Reno, a strong delegation
from Capitol Post attended.
On December 4. 1919, officers for the following year were
elected. These were J. M. Kane, post commander; A. A. Mil-
lard, vice commander; V. P. Warren, post adjutant; L. M.
Powers, finance officer, and Maurice J. Sullivan, post historian.
All of these officers now occupy the chairs with the exception
.j. of L. M. Powers, who resigned his office upon leaving the city,
and whose pl-jee is now filled by Dale Pruett.
Capitol Post, No. 4, was the first post in Nevada to organ
ize a Woman's Auxiliary. This was organized on the 22d of
January, 1920, and since that time has grown to number about
seventy members, all of whom have proven themselves inval
uable as an auxiliary to the former service men. Their pres
ent officers are : Mrs. Drue Carothers, president ; Mrs. Josie
Millard, vice president; Mrs. Rosalie Payne, secretary, and
Mrs. Elspat Ligon. treasurer.
Today Capitol Post boasts over 100 members who are de
voted to the task of aiding their brother and sister patriots, of
protecting and strengthening their city, state and country, and
of making America a nation of better, happier citizens.
