Herriman Saturday

Tuesday, June 9 1908 -- Herriman adds a little liveliness to this front page photo portrait of a political triumvirate. These are the men who will shepherd William Howard Taft, ally and groomed successor of Teddy Roosevelt, to the nomination of the Republican party.


The city near the Mars-sur -Allier American Base Hospital is Nevers, not Navarre. My father was at the Mars Hospital as a medical assistant and wrote for The Martian. I have a complete set of the Martians.

My father met and later married a young woman of the nearby village of Moiry. I am very involved in the village and have contributed photos, writings etc. about the Mars Hospital Camp. The village is preparing for the 100th anniversary of the arrival of the Americans there in 1917. I have published a book of my mother's stories about life in her village in the early part of the 20th century: Vignettes de Moiry in French and Vignettes of Moiry in English. One of my friends in Moiry who is passionate about this history sent me the information about Al Zere. Fascinating!
