April 5, 1950: "Harold Gregg Hibdon, 24-year-old fire fighter for the Missouri Conservation commission, died this morning at St. Mary's hospital of injuries he suffered when he was struck by an automobile March 30. Hibdon was a towerman at the Rocky Mount tower in the Lake Ozark fire protection district of the commission's forestry division. His home was at Eldon. The accident occurred two miles north of Eldon on Highway 54 when a car driven by Dr. R.B. Wray of Nevada struck Hibdon. Hibdon was standing behind his jeep removing fire fighting equipment from the vehicle preparatory to extinguishing a brush fire. Dr. Wray told the State Highway Patrol that smoke from the fire made the vehicle and Hibdon invisible to him. Wray and Dr. C. Braxton Davis, also of Nevada, were returning from a St. Louis meeting of the Missouri Medical association. They gave first aid to Hibdon and rushed him to the hospital here."
