Alan Stein will present our May
program with the history of E
Clampus Vitus, a volunteer group

remember Alan from when he

that indexed the East Side Journal

uses every working day. Alan also
did great cemetery tours. Today
Alan is a historian for HistoryLink.

Lee Caldwell Ragsdale
Lee graduated from Kirkland High School in 1941. It had always been reported that Lee died fighting Guerrillas in the Philippines. Earlier this year we learned that Lee had been taken prisoner in 1942, survived the Bataan Death March and died while a P.O.W. in 1943. Lee’s body was recovered in 1949 and returned home. Lee is buried in the Kirkland Cemetery. We owe thanks to Lee Ragsdale Bates and Stacey Ragsdale for providing a photo of Lee.
Russ McClintick wore Floyd Berkey’s Kirkland Fireman’s hat during the April 29, 2015 presentation given by Captain Bill Hoover. The hat is on display at Kirkland Heritage Society with other fire related items and photos. The hat is in the Arnie Berkey Collection.
It was a wonderful 4th of July
