This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1898 Excerpt: ... from 1858 to 1868, was captain of the Salvage Corps a number of years. He resigned September 15, 1890, and was succeeded October 1, 1890, by Joseph C. McGregor, who continues in command of the corps. At the time of Captain McGregor's appointment the board of management stated in its report: "He was not an untried man, having served in the City Fire Department for some years acceptably." The full organization of the Salvage Corps as now constituted is as follows: Board of Management.--James A. Richardson, of E. J. Richardson & Sons, president; John H. Katzenberger, vice-president; Wm. R. Barry, president Maryland Fire Insurance Company, secretary-treasurer. Active Members.--Joseph C. McGregor, captain; R. G. Kettlewell, lieutenant; Edwin Quigley, clerk and sub-lieutenant; Patrick Ryan, Wm. A. Taylor and Joseph Short, drivers; John Foreman, Harry Greenwald, Frederick L. Deets, Joshua V. Young, John L. Hanssen, Luther Sunderland, regular members; Wm. Shaw, Edward J. Rice, John W. McKenny and George Hoen, auxiliary members; George Williams and Adam D. Kelly, probationers. VETERAN VOLUNTEER FIREMEN'S ASSOCIATION. Men are inclined to treasure the memories of past achievements, especially when common toil and danger have drawn them into friendly intercourse and fellowship. The survivors of the old volunteer fire system furnish a typical example of this tendency. Once a fireman, always a fireman, seems to be a proposition readily accepted by them. Nearly every city that formerly possessed a volunteer service now contains a veteran volunteer firemen's association. These veterans take pride in being members of a fraternity that extends from the Atlantic to the Pacific, and their fraternal feeling has been displayed in a substantial way time and again. ...
