Pullman War Memorial

In 1949, the Pullman Civic Organization (PCO) embarked on an effort to erect a monument to the 14 servicemen from Pullman who died in World War II. The project was headed by Ladi Tome, chairman of the PCO war monument committee. This record includes a written chronology by Mr. Tome of each step in the process starting in April, 1949 and ending on May 20, 1950. The monument was dedicated on May 21, 1950. The file contains correspondence with vendors, work orders, invoices, and correspondence with city officials regarding permitting, city council approvals, newspaper articles, etc. Also included are short biographies of each individual shown on the monument. Names were later added to memorialize servicemen from the Korean and Vietnam conflicts. There is later correspondence relating effort to move the monument from in front of Pullman School to Arcade Park in 1987. This effort was unsuccessful. The file contains copies, photocopies, and original handwritten documents. Full record available for viewing at the Bertha Ludlum Reading Room in the Hotel Florence.
