The First District Governor (1918-1919)

George W. Milligan of Chicago was the first to serve what is now Multiple District 11, but was then part of District 9. With the organizing of ten (10) clubs by the end of 1920, Tony Menke of Detroit was elected District Governor of the entire Lower Peninsula - District 11. Michigan is the only state in the nation to have two (2) multiple district designations... District 10, in the Upper Peninsula and District 11, in the Lower Peninsula. This was necessary because of the unique nature of the state... two peninsulas separated by a strait. It was a very practical solution to a problem. Administration of one district would have been very difficult.
