05/23/15 199 W, 1 I - + 10 - 4 Reference Sources For Houston Fire Department Millennium Book

Happened upon a copy of Houston Fire Department 2000: Millennium Edition, published by the Houston Fire Museum and printed by Taylor Publishing Company. The hardcover book measures 9" by 12" and contains 336 pages. The contents are the expected past 'n' present collection of names, portraits, pictures, and narratives. But there are some interesting sidebar items, including:

And a list of References, titled "Sources and suggested readings about the history of the city, firefighting, and the Houston Fire Department." Now that's neat and something I wish we'd (a.) compiled and (b.) included in the Raleigh Fire Department's centennial history book.

Surely there's on online version, right? History Boy has everything else seemingly documented on his RFD history site. Cough, cough, kinda, sorta. He has a page of sources from 2004, which applies to both Raleigh and Wake County information. But nothing specific about the city and the city fire department.

Memo to self: rectify said situation. Click to enlarge:
