Mr. H. H. Dunn Commences
Work as Secretary of Lo-
cal Board of Trade; Roa-
noke Comment
          Mr. H. H. Dunn,  the new live-wire secretary of the Winston-Salem Board of Trade, and  Mrs. Dunn  and little daughter, have arrived in this city and will reside at 519 South Main Street, Mrs. Dunn having spent two days in trying to locate a vacant house in the city, almost reaching the conclusion that "they ain't none."
          Mr. Dunn arrived Tuesday and has been spending the time "getting his hand in" at the local Board of Trade office.  He was secured to take the place vacated by the resignation recently of  Mr. P. O. Leak,  after a thorough investigatin of him and a number of other possibilities, by a special committee appointed by  President A. H. Galloway  a few weeks ago.
          In referring to Mr. Dunn's work in Roanoke, the Roanoke Times of Sunday has the following to say:
          Herbert Hayes Dunn,  for the past year assistant secretary of the Roanoke Chamber of Commerce, will leave here tomorrow for Winston-Salem where on January first he will assume the duties of secretary of the Winston-Salem Board of Trade.  Through his connection with the local Chamber of Commerce and through his own personality Mr. Dunn has made during his stay here many warm friends who feel that the departure of such an energetic worker in all matters pertaining to civic welfare will result in a material loss to Roanoke.
        Mr. Dunn, who by profession is a commercial and industrial engineer, was born in Shelbyville, Indiana, where he lived until about ten years ago.  During the first five years of his professional career, he was in the employment of  Edgar Potter  of Chicago in the capacity of industrial manager.  The Potter Company operates between ten and twenty gas plants located at different points in the middle West.  During his association with this company, Mr. Dunn was charged with the upbuilding of these properties and had complete control over the connected commercial work except that of manufacturing.
          For five years following this period Mr. Dunn was located at Wilmington Delaware, where he had charge of industrial work for the C. H. Geist Company of Philadelphia.  This corporation operates the gas plants of Roanoke, Atlantic City, Lansing, Mich., Freeport, Ill., Florence, Ala., and the ten million dollar water works at Indianapolis.
          Mr. Dunn was sent to Roanoke by this company several years ago.  Shortly after that he was employed by the local Chamber of Commerce to make an industrial survey of the city, which was contemplated at that time.  This plan was later abandoned, however, because of the fact that on account of the abnormal industrial conditions created here by the war, it was thought that such a survey would be of little permanent value.  It was found that the busniess of many manufacturers in the city had coubled and tripled since the outbreak of the war and hence a survey based upon such figures as these would fall far short of showing Roanoke's actual industrial condition.
          In connection with the industrial and commercial work, Mr. Dunn has written a number of articles upon these subjects which have been published in the Gas Record and in the Gas Engineering Journal.  He has also delivered several addresses before national gas conferences.
          Mr. Dunn is a member of the Rotary, Booster and Elks clubs.

          Mr. Will B. Dunn  and son,  Frank T. Dunn,  of this city leave Sunday for Jacksonville, Florida, where they will stay for a time.  Mr. Dunn has only recently returned from the State Tunberculosis Sanitarium at Rockville.  Mr. Dunn feels that he has completely recovered but wants a warmer climate than Indiana for outdoor work the year around.  Frank Dunn has for the past eighteen months been a collector for the Republican office.  We are sorry to see him leave but wish him success in his new home.
