List of 1921 list of Firefighters added to HFD

A scrapbook was found a few years ago owned by Chief Grover Adams who was in the HFD from 1915 to 1960. In it was an article from April
 1, 1921 that listed the new firefighters that the Houston Fire Department had hired when a new shift was added. The list of firefighters only identified them by their last name in a newspaper clipping. I have since researched this list using the City Directory. These firefighters were not placed on the Memorial wall at the pension office. The fire fighters whose first or middle names have been found have been added to this web site, if you know anything about the names on this list place please email me. 

Denotes only last name of firefighter is available
