Pleas helped locate photos of 10 past city mayors

May 17, 2013 - Ron Warpness, Mayor, Riverton


Some time ago I wrote a letter to the editor regarding my search for pictures of past mayors who have served the City of Riverton.

I am happy to report that I have been able to find four of our "lost souls." They are: Frank B. Sheldon, Mar. 16, 1921 --June 6, 1921; A.B. Conant, May 27, 1936 --Oct. 4, 1943; W.B "Bill" Glass, July 25,1947 --June 7, 1948 and Thomas E. "Tommy" Knight, June 7, 1948 --May 26, 1950.

Out of the 28 mayors that we have had since 1906, the following is a list of the 10 men that we still need pictures of as well as the years that they served.

I would like to ask all you old-timers to spend a few minutes and look through your photo albums and old shoe boxes with pictures and see if we can't bring these missing men to the position of honor that they deserve.

If you don't have a picture perhaps you know of a family member or friend that can help.

Here is the list:

W.E. Young Nov. 24, 1906 --May 14, 1907

E.H. Ryan May 25, 1908 --May 16, 1909

John O'Hearn May 18, 1909 --May 16, 1910

P.C. Stepp May 16, 1910 --May 9, 1911

Wm M. Cain May 22, 1911 --May 16, 1913

J. A. L. Chenery June 4, 1917 --June 3, 1918

E. P Wilcox June 6, 1921 --June 1, 1924

Water Warren June 2, 1924 --June 1, 1926

Henry Keating Nov. 4, 1929 --May 15, 1936

F.D. Stratton June 5, 1950 --Dec. 7, 1953
