Kenlon Returns from the Coast
Former Chief John Kenlon, of the New York Fire Department, recently returned to his home in New Jersey, after a six-months’ stay in California, loud in his praises of western hospitality, particularly as represented by those California stalwarts, Chief Chas. J. Brennan, of San Francisco, Chief J. W. Stevens, State Fire Marshal of California, and Chas. Lum, Western Manager of the National Board of Fire Underwriters.
On his way east, Chief Kenlon stopped off for a day at Chicago, where Chief Frank McAuliffe, of the Chicago Insurance Patrols, proved an equally capable host.
Despite his seventy-odd years, the Chief appeared in fine physical trim, bronzed and the picture of health.
