Annual meeting of the Hartford Junior McAll Auxiliary

01/11/1919 |


The annual meeting of the Hartford Junior McAll Auxiliary was scheduled to be held at 3:00 in the parish house. Walter Schutz was the featured speaker, and he planned to discuss his personal experiences among the soldiers of the American Expeditionary Forces in France.

Trust but verify

The note appeared in the “Social and Personal” column and announced that the meeting was today.

Questions to pose

Why was this meeting and talk held so close to the memorial service for John Voorhees?  What was the Hartford Junior McAll Auxiliary?  And who was Walter Schutz?
