St. Louis, like many communities, had volunteer firemen. They formed the Veteran Volunteer Firemen’s Historical Society, which included members from 1888 to 1906. The History of the Volunteer Fire Department of St. Louis Illustrated is available at the Missouri History Museum Library and Research Center.

Lloyd Mattson directed the editor to this information for publication in the 2003 St. Louis Genealogical Society Quarterly, volume 36, number 3, pages 89–90.
