Pauly, Anc sn


Elmer George Pauly, former U. S. A. “Commissioner for Trade”, worked at Chancery  House, Melbourne, Vic.,  Aust. I remember I used to visit Chancery House when I worked for the Dept. of (Air) Defence in the early 70’s.

From the personal column of “The Argus” Friday Jan 16th 1925.
“The American Assistant Trade Commissioner (Mr. Elmer G. Pauly) left Melbourne yesterday. He will be away about two weeks, and will be the guest of the Mayors of several Western District towns before going to the Grampians. ..”

In another article “He arrived back in Australia (Sydney) on 4th Feb 1927 after having departed with his family in 1926 from Melbourne where he had been based for a few years.”

He worked at Chancery House, on and off in the period 1923-1928.
