Klopf, Capt. H.W. (Resignation from Wisconsin State Guards – 20 Mar 1919)

Captain H.W. Klopf, who has, since the organization of Company I, Wis. State Guards, been its captain, has resigned the position and his resignation has been accepted. He recommended that First Lieutenant J.J. Irvine be commissioned captain, and this will probably be done, although no formal announcement to this effect has been made.

Lieutenant Irvine returned home Monday from Madison, when he had been called with the contemplated change.

Captain M.P. Curtus, of Camp Douglas, was here this week, checking up on the affairs of the company. He left for Camp Douglas Monday.

Captain Klopf has been very active in military affairs and has devoted much of his time to the work of the organization and development of the home company.

At the meeting Monday night 1st Lieut. J.J. Irvine was elected captain, 2nd Lieut. A.L. Devos was elected 1st Lieutenant and Henry Frantz was elected 1st Sergeant.
