12/03/14 193 W, 1 I - + 8 - 4 North Carolina Fire Department Statistics, 1910

Here's a historical treat for your Wayback Wednesday or whatever the heck you're calling Hump Day these days. (Guess what day it is?!?) This is a supplement to the annual report of the Statistician of the North Carolina State Fireman's Association. Such reports were compiled annually and presented as part of each year's conference program booklet. Yours Truly has photocopied reports from 1908 to 1915 and from 1939 to 1944, and posted scans on my history site. Hope to someday get back to their offices and copy other years and decades.

For the second set of reports, it's noted that the data was reported to the state Insurance Commissioner. Wonder what sort of archives they have? That would be a coup, finding a repository of historical fire department data dating back to early last century. Hope to someday pursue that as well. (Why is Mike mucking around in this data this week? Working on a pair of historical narratives on Morehead City and Biltmore's fire departments.)

Here's a PDF version of the (re)scanned report below. With horizontal lines added to help read the thing.
