WARNING: The image is approximately 2.5MB.The following database was compiled from a copy of the Grand Rapids Press of Grand Rapids Michigan on July 20 and July 21, 1917. Grand Rapids was responsible for supplying 204 soldiers by draft to fill its army quota of 1445 men. This number was relatively small as 1241 local boys had already enlisted. Each ward was responsible for supplying approximately 1/3 of the 204 soldiers. "It is sure therefore that all these named among the 1st hundred drawn are drafted and must go to war unless exempted later on. The expected exemption will render considerably more than the first hundred from this ward liable to service in the first draft army.

The names are given in the order in which the serial numbers were drawn. The 1st ward embraces all of the west side of Grand Rapids from the river to the western limits."

The order of the draws are listed as "1st Hundred, 2nd Hundred, 3rd Hundred, etc." In some cases, not all the draws have exactly 100 people as there were some duplications removed. However, the order listed in this database is the order in which the serial# of the draftee was drawn in each set and thus not in alphabetical order. To find a surname of interest, click on the letter of the first letter of the surname. You can return to the original listing by clicking on the link "Original View".

NOTE: These listings are for the 1st Ward only.
