Y.C.L. FOUNDER IS FOUND DEAD
M. M. Guhin, Of Aberdeen, Passes Away Alone In Hotel Room
ABERDEEN, Oct. 18 (AP) — Michael M. Guhin, founder of the Young Citizens’ League program, was found dead Friday in his hotel room. He died in his sleep some time during the night Thursday. His death was discovered by a chambermaid.
Born in Reedsville, Wis., Mr. Guhin already had entered his chosen field, teaching, before coming to South Dakota at the turn of the century. He taught at Eureka before coming to Aberdeen where he became associated with his brother in a book store.
While in Aberdeen he served as county superintendent of schools, and it was during this time that he launched the Y. C. L. which now has spread to many states.
Surviving are three brothers, Joe of Reedsville, Steve of Chicago and Tim of Salt Lake City, and a sister, Mrs. Mary Kirley of Minneapolis.
I purchased roughly 25 original issues of the Yankton (South Dakota) Press & Dakotan, dating from 1938 to 1946. I am systematically going through every issue and will be posting the articles that include the names of individuals. I am happy to email full-size scans of any article. Feel free to ask.
