Information from the Virginia Hanson Special Collections
Logan Chapter - Service Star Legion
clear

The Service Star Legion was a veteran's service organization in the early part of the 20th Century. This plaque hung in the entryway of the old library building, located at 90 North 100 East. The Gold Star Boys were those who were slain while serving this country in World War I.

It now hangs in the Virginia Hanson Special Collections room. It is not only an important part of the library's history but also of our city.

This year we celebrate a century since Armistice Day, the treaty which ended the "Great War". There are a variety of community events being planned to celebrate this important point in history. Contact the Information Desk beginning in September to learn more.

Other Logan residents which died in World War I:

  • LaVon R. Hickman
  • Alma L. Larsen
  • Thomas H. Rowe
  • Malverne H. Toombs
