Youngest Member of Girls Service Group

FIRST BABY TO VISIT USO CENTER. Stanley Ann Dunham, five-months-old daughter of Pfc. Stanley A. Dunham and Mrs. Dunham of 1829 South Salina Street, and "escort." From left to right, around the baby and her father are Leading Aircraftsman Kenneth Taylor of Lancaster, England, Pvt. Robert A. Conboy of Hollis, Leading Air Craftsman John Johnson of Oxford, England, and Sgt. Theodore Tyshowski of Jamaica.

Men have come to the United Service Organization Center, in East Onondaga Street, from all over the world but last week-end was the first time a baby has been a guest at the Center.
She is Stanley Ann Dunham five months old daughter of Pfc. and Mrs. Stanley A. Dunham of 1829 South Salina Street. Her father is stationed at the Syracuse Army Air Base.
Little Stanley also was the youngest girl ever admitted to membership in the Girls' Service Organization at the Center, which arranges social affairs for visiting military men.
Stanley was born at Wichita and has been living here with her mother since her father was assigned to the Syracuse Air Base.
In addition to the baby's visit to the Center, the first spring formal dance took place last week-end, with an attendance of more than 300.
Mrs. Leo Hanrahan was in charge of arrangements and produced an entertainment featuring Sonya Marens, June Tasker, vocal soloist; Peggy Kimball, pianist and Mary Hilbert, tap dancer pupil of Miss Marens.

Thanks so much.

What can I say? It wasn't the Post-Standard, but the Herald-Journal. It wasn't Fort Drummond (should have read Drum), but the Syracuse Army Air Base. Bad info and you still managed to find it, LOL!

(nobody would know I lived outside Syracuse for 17 years)

I don't trust that article. Sounds like Mooney-Kirk herself was in SYRACUSE.

"...During his time in Hawaii and in need of support as a full time student, Obama reached out to Laubach Literacy International for additional financial assistance. In the spirit of the organizational belief that it could help "build tomorrow's teams in centers and abroad" the organization awarded Obama a Fund Scholarship to support to his United States studies. The record of this funding was noted in the organization's 1961 Annual Report: "Barack Obama, from Kenya, is in an undergraduate program at the University of Hawaii. An honor student, Barack may come later to Syracuse for literacy journalism." 6 Because of her deep belief in his skills and abilities, Mooney also provided personal financial assistance to Obama to support his tenure at the University of Hawaii..."
