100 YEARS AGO: Modesto Fire Chief Wallace received a letter asking him to attend the annual convention of the Pacific Coast Association of Fire Chiefs.

The invitation stated the chief should attend because Modesto was a model of the commission form of government and the association wished to hear from Modesto's Fire Department.
