Harry Gale McNomee with his Mother, Cora- 1884.
This is a picture of the portrait of Harry Gale McNomee with his mother, Cora L. McNomee. Harry was born in 1883, so the portrait was made when he was one year old. Mr. McNomee’s biggest contribution to the town of Oakland was in the role of fire commissioner of the Oakland Volunteer Fire Department. McNomee oversaw a successful campaign to re-ignite interest in the department after years of dwindling manpower. His term as fire commissioner, a five year term starting in 1935, saw the department purchasing useful facilities and pieces of equipment for its job. He was also involved with the creation of the Franklin Lakes Fire Department.
