Title: Records of Company I, 138th Infantry, 35th Division, American Expeditionary Force: 1921 Funeral Series

Description: The 1921 Funeral in St. Louis of Captain A.R. Skinker, Company I’s commanding officer and a winner of the Congressional Medal of Honor, is detailed in a series consisting primarily of correspondence between the event’s planners and participants. This correspondence falls into two time periods: January to April and August to September 1921. An enclosure to a September 9, 1921, letter from H.D. McBride, chairman of the Arrangements Committee, provides a detailed schedule of events for the funeral. Also included in this series are a biography of Captain Skinker written about 1923 by his father Thomas K. Skinker, a program from the 1918 commemoration service for Captain Skinker, press clippings from 1918 to 1921 dealing with Captain Skinker’s heroic actions and his funeral, and a cemetery map showing the location of his grave.
