Excerpt from Report of the Adjutant General of the State of Minnesota, Vol. 1: Covering the Thirtieth Biennial Period Ending December 31, 1918

The fol-lowing report of the activities of the office of the Adjutant General of Minnesota is respectfully presented for your approval. It covers the period from May 5, 1917, on which date I was appointed your military secretary, to December 31, 1918.

As the United States of America had declared a state of war to exist between it and the Imperial Government of Germany, the labors thus thrust upon my department were of huge proportions. You delegated to the Adjutant General's department the burden of the supervision of the Selective Service and the multitudinous details attending it. The Federalization of the National Guard, existing before the war, necessitated the formation of new regiments to replace them together with the formation of a Home Guard for strictly state duty. Two natural calamities smote the people of the state with heavy hand, but due to the speed of which this department is capable, the suffering naturally attendant was materially reduced. Effec tive remedies were at once applied which relieved the unnatural situation in short order.

Needless to say this work has not been accomplished entirely thy me and I desire to commend to your favorable attention the work of those associated with me. The majority of these efficient workers have labored for inhuman stretches of time at tasks which it was imperative should be expedited; their efficiency has at all times been a proven quantity and their loyalty of heroic quality.

Here and in this public manner, I desire to thank the members of my staff and office force, the officers and men of the Minnesota National Guard, the Home Guard and the Motor Corps, the members of the 121 local draft boards, the members of the five district draft boards, the members of the legal advisory and medical advisory boards, the members of the instruction boards and all others who have so courteously and competently assisted this office in the furtherance of my sworn duty to the state of Minnesota.
