Passport Application - Leroy Gregory - 1918

Leroy Gregory, the son of William Francis Gregory and wife Zelma, was born at Hartford August 21, 1869. He was living in Atlanta, GA at the time of his Passport Application. He states that his occupation was banking.  His application was for the purpose of traveling to England and France to work with YMCA Overseas Service.  A letter that accompanied his application states that Mr. Gregory "has been appointed a Secretary of the National War Work Council of the YMCA for temporary service with U.S. troops serving in France."  This was a volunteer position that was designed to aid our young men that were engaged in war far from home. His service with the YMCA was planned to last three years, although the Armistice was signed November 11, 1918 and Mr. Gregory was home and living in Atlanta by the time of the 1920 census. He died in Atlanta, GA November 15, 1930, at the age of 60.
