Posted on August 7, 2014 by CDFuneralNews

100 years ago, these CANA Convention attendees looked a little different than the group gathering in Minneapolis next week, but shared the same mission.

Attendees of the second annual meeting of the Cremation Association of America, held in Indianapolis, Indiana, September 3-4, 1914. Dr. Hugo Erichsen, founder of the Cremation Association, is just behind the plaque. The photo also includes Frank Cobb (Boston), George Metcalfe (Buffalo), Charles Reynolds (Los Angeles), A.T. Roever (Cincinnati), Richard D’Oench (St. Louis), W. J. Adams (Ft. Wayne), E.P. Samson (Pittsburgh), Conrad Krueck (Cleveland), Frank Bates Flanner, Charles Buchanan and J.F. Balcolm (Indianapolis), among others.
