Official Manual and Register 1909 free pdf Excerpt from Official Manual and Register 1909 To write the history of a benevolent association is to tell a story of men banded together for the common good of mankind- of a gathering of workers who agree to lay aside a portion of their daily earnings to help those of their associates who may be in need or want- to tell of a society formed for the purpose of making a practical demonstration of the teachings of the Golden Rule. Surely this is reading which ought to interest all thinkers, all who enjoy the broad, generous things in life, and all who believe in the cultivation of the finer traits in human nature. There have been benevolent associations from time immemorial, formed by all classes and kinds of workers - artisans, mechanics, tradesmen and professional men - the basic principle actuating all these organizations being the same in every case the formation of fund, by individual taxation, to give substantial aid to a fellow member in case of illness and practical assistance of a like nature to his widow, heirs, or next of kin, in event of his death. There may have been some variation of detail in effecting this result, with different organizations, but fundamentally this was the foundation upon which all of these associations have been established, and what noble charities they have been- how simple, direct and human in their purpose- and how worthy of the success which has nearly always attended every movement of this kind! But what class of workers - and may we not call them workers, since their labors call for skill, judgment, endurance and courage, qualities looked for in men who produce things - have been more deserving of such charities as these than have the paid members of the large fire departments in this country, whose calling is not only one of the most hazardous character, but one in which the uncertainties of life have been greatly accentuated? Unfortunately, these men, on account of their vocation, have not been able to avail themselves of the benefits of the various public and private organizations maintained for the purposes mentioned above, benefits open to men in the ordinary walks of life but denied to the fireman on account of the element of risk so largely associated with his work. Therefore it remained for him to gather his fellow workers together that they might form an organization of a like nature among themselves, but one mapped out upon such practical lines as to make it a distinct improvement over any other existing organization, and one so liberal and just in its charities that the members could rest assured that those near and dear to them would receive prompt financial aid, in the event of a calamity of any kind, without the hampering restrictions, or unnecessary red tape, which had so nullified all the good intents of many other benevolent associations. It is to tell the story of such a movement, and the great good it has accomplished, that this little article is written, and it is to be hoped it will prove worthy of the cause it represents, and that it may provide food for thought among those who are interested in philanthropic work of all kinds. The New York Fire Department Benevolent Association was founded in 1900, the idea of such an organization finding its inception in the mind of Mr. Charles D. Purroy, then a Deputy Chief in the New York Fire Department, who, discovering that the sentiment he voiced was felt by many others, succeeded in gathering together sufficient fellow members to warrant the calling of a meeting to formulate plans to place the organization on a definite footing, and this meeting, the first one in the history of the association, was held in July, 1900, at No. 166 East Thirty-third Street (at that time a storehouse belonging to the Fire Department), and the following temporary officers were elected: Mr. Richard W. Callaghan, temporary chairman- Mr. John P.Howe, temporary secretary- Mr. Patrick F. Ryan, temporary treasurer.
