This important uniform grouping of U. S. Army career officer Francis Hamilton Farnum (graduated West Point with Douglas MacArthur in 1903) is best described by our illustrations except to say that each piece remains in fine condition in every respect with several components inscribed to Farnum. Acquired directly from descendants, this offering is as a group only and will come with our letter of provenance.

Born in Norristown Pa., 1881, Francis Hamilton Farnum devoted over twenty years to a career in the military. Following is a compilation of that service from official army records:
Graduating from the U. S. Military Academy at West Point in 1903, Farnum served in the Philippines and in Cuba in the early 1900 before being assigner as Instructor of Tactics at West Point in 1907. Recorded with the 24th Infantry in 1909 we find Farnum back in the Philippines in 1911 through the later part of 1914 when he is transferred to the 23rd Infantry. We next find our man in Augusta, Maine where, in 1915 he is designated in official records as Inspector / Instructor, Maine National Guard. Apparently now on a fast track, Farnum is promoted to Captain of Infantry , July 1, 1916 then to Major of Infantry and Assistant Chief of Staff, 40th Division at Camp Kearny, Cal., August 1917. He is promoted to Lt. Colonel in July 1918 and in September 1918 he is Acting Chief of Staff, 6th Depot Division (40th Div.) La Guerche, France then at Revigny, Meuse, France, Acting Chief of Staff, 1st Replacement Division (40th Div.). Upon the close of World War I in 1918 we find Lt. Col. Farnum en route back to Camp Kearny, California for muster out of the 40th Division until April, 1919. Additional Post War service is recorded as Inspector / Instructor Maine National Guard to October, 1919.
This uniform group of Francis H. Farnum contains: 1 West Point Tail Coat with Trousers, 1 Dress Cape, 3 Dress Coats, 1 pr Dress Trousers, 2 Dress Vests, 4 Un-dress Coats, 4 Un-dress T 1trousers, 1 pr Dress Capt. Shoulder Boards, 1 Dress Waist BeltReasonably priced so as to keep this historic uniform grouping together we invite serious inquiries at:
