Documentation at the post shows that the Freehold Post 54 Ladies Auxiliary Unit was formed on September 22, 1922 and that Emma Florence Beach was the first president. In going through old newspapers for the Centennial web site we found a small article in the November 16, 1921 edition of the Red Bank Register that raised some quesitons. The article stated that: "A woman's auxiliary to the Freehold post of the American Legion has been organized with Mrs. Clifford Conner president. Mrs. C. C. Snyder is senior vice president, Miss Nell L. Foley secretary and Mrs. George Stokes treasurer."
