  1. Oh. My. Word. So the closing prayer was given by William M. McKay who is listed as a pilot. I think this guy was a nephew of David O. McKay and the son of William M. McKay Sr.
    The guy who built my house.
    What a post this has been.

  2. Just a few comments about the roll:

    I corrected a few spellings when I had good evidence of the proper spelling. For example, my father’s given name was misspelled–and though he used to say that he wasn’t sure when he started first grade whether that name was Eliot or Zock (his nickname), he probably did know (and knew how to spell it) by the time he turned 19.

    In other instances, a name appeared in the roll and elsewhere in the minutes, and though I’m with Mark Twain in not giving a damn for a man who can’t spell a word more than one way, in those instances I followed what seemed the more likely spelling (McKay rather than Makay, for example).

    The consistent handwriting and the misspelling of my father’s name suggest that Sgt. Clyde recorded all the names and other information about each attendee. I am curious how that was done. Since the roll appears in the notebook after the minutes of the meeting, I suspect that the attendees lined up to meet Pres. Brown, and passed by Sgt. Clyde who took down their information.

    Finally, I would guess that the inclusion of APO (Army Post Office) numbers in the roll was to facilitate future contacts. The sudden end of the war shortly after this meeting and the rapid demobilization made that largely unnecessary.
