Chief Mosbaugh Honored
Two hundred friends of Chief E. H. Mosbaugh, Riverside, Cal., honored him with a surprise banquet at the American Legion clubhouse, recently, to mark his fifty years of fire fighting. He was brought to the hall by the Mayor. He was still attired in his fishing togs, for he had been taken on a pre-arranged fishing trip.
Jay Stevens, State Fire Marshal, was master of ceremonies. Chief Mosbaugh was presented with a diamond studded Chief’s badge in the form of a watch fob, and the ladies auxiliary presented a handsome blanket. Present at the dinner were old friends from Santa Ana and Redlands, where he had served as Chief for twelve years.
In 1919, Mosbaugh went to Riverside, and he was appointed Chief in 1930.
Telegrams of congratulations were sent by Fire Department officials and those in the fire prevention field, from various parts of the United States.
