Troop 37 History

The source for the initial information for this History page came from a compilation by Robert E. Moseley in 1966. This compilation existed as a paper copy until 2000 when it was transcribed into a Web page.

A pdf (24K) version of the history is available here. Adobe Acrobat Reader is required to read this file. A zip file (1.9MB) of gif images of the original paper report is available here.

Troop History

An anecdotal troop history from 1916 to 1945 was gathered by Mr. Moseley. In addition, Mr. Moseley reported on troop activity from 1961 to 1966. Anyone who can supply additional information about the troop history is urged to contact us.
