Oldest Fire Chief Dies

George Wallace, Fire Chief Emeritus of the Cleveland, Ohio, Fire Department and who was believed to be the oldest Fire Chief in the United States, died at his home at the age of ninety-two. He served sixty-one years with the Cleveland Fire Department. Even though he gave up active duty in 1931, he continued to be a fireman. He lived at the firehouse, got up at every alarm and observed the rules of the company. At one time, he expressed his hope which was to “live to be 100.”
