Summary
This collection contains Dr. George R. Alsop's bond for his work as treasurer of the George Rogers Clark Memorial Commission of Indiana dated March 12, 1930. Along with Dr. Alsop's signature as principal of the $200,000 bond, Frank L. Oliphant and William M. Alsop also signed as sureties. The bond was sent to Miss Martha Allerdice at the Indiana State House and was accompanied by a letter from attorney D.
