Major Shapers of Davis, #2: Calvin Covell (66)


Second in a series on people who have significantly altered or elaborated the physical or social character of Davis.

This post features an article from the Davis Enterprise published on November 26, 1962 celebrating the 90th birthday of Calvin Covell. I reproduce it as evidence of the esteem in which Mr. Covell was held at that time and the role he was seen as having in Davis history. It is followed by a reproduction of the February 4, 1944 Enterprise report on Mr. Covell receiving the Chamber of Commerce’s first “doing the most for Davis” award. At the same time, the award was also named for him.
