1. It is with profound regret that I announce the death on 1 January 1999 of Past Commander-in-Chief Clark W Mellor.
2. PCC Mellor served with distinction as Commander-in-Chief in 1988 from the Massachusetts Department. After 79 years of service to the nation and this Order, PCinC Mellor was buried in Worcester, MA on 4 January 99.
3. I charge all department commanders to drape department charters in his honor and to require that all camps do likewise for a period of 30 days from this date.
By Order of
Andrew M. Johnson
