On March 29, 1925 the American Legion Unit of the American Legion Auxiliary was chartered at what was then known as the Joe Carson Post of The American Legion. The Charter Membership Roll contains the signatures of 31 women, headed by our first president, Ruth Wilson Hurley. Our Unit has proudly served the community since before it was chartered, and we call ourselves Unit 1.

When Post 1 built a new home at what is now 1120 East 8th Street here in Tulsa, the Legionnaires, City and Waite Phillips recognized the importance of the American Legion Auxiliary by setting aside a room in the building for the use of Unit 1. Our Unit meets in this same room to this day surrounded by decorations and memorabilia recalling our glorious history of service to the Legion and Tulsa.
