Names on Wall Project

Volunteer Opportunity Honors Vets

The Torrance Historical Society Board persists in its project to gather and preserve the too-short life story of each of the 146 Torrance military personnel who gave their lives in service to country. Using the scant information from local public records, the Society provided study guides and enlisted the help of the local high schools. During the Spring school semester of 2008, students at North and Torrance High Schools collected information on some of those listed on the Memorial Wall at Torrance Civic Center.

Much remains to be done to achieve the objective. Help is needed. Michael George, Society Board member and Reference Librarian at the Katy Geissert Library, will present two fact finding seminars for volunteer researchers. They will learn techniques for gathering information from yearbooks, newspapers, directories and government records.

Volunteers are urged to contact Jerry Ronan at 310.328.1972 or GTRonan@aol.com or the Museum at 310.328.5392.
