140th F Club Records (KC0119)
On June 23, 1930, a group of veterans of "F" Company who had served together during World War I, met informally and decided to form a permanent organization, the "140th F Club." The purpose of the club was "to promote and perpetuate the friendship and comradeship of our army days in the World War and on the Mexican Border. Also, to aid and assist fellow Buddies who might need help." Beginning in September of that year, monthly meetings and annual reunions were held until 1974, when the organization turned to a more informal structure. The final meeting of the club occurred in 1982.
The records consist of meeting minutes, financial records, membership records, and memorabilia related to the club's activities. Also included is a series of photographs of annual reunions held between ca. 1930 and 1973. ca. 1927-1979
