Patrolman William R Myers died on 27 Sept 1933 at home a week after leaving his post due to a heart attack. He had complaining for years of the stress put on him by his post near Lexington Market, that stress had him moved from directing pedestrian and vehicular traffic by hand, to working a Semaphore. It can be a tough job, and while he didn't actually die on his post, from his complaints it is obvious his post as one of the original "Beauty Squad" took its toll on him and was documented over the years. Aside from remembering him on this day, take a look at his history and the history of the Beauty Squad and some of the ways they directed traffic over the years before forming the Traffic squad.
