The following is excerpted from an obituary that appeared in the Commercial Appeal on 10 Jan 06.

 

Elmon Odell Baker, Memphis businessman and one-man voter registration campaign, is credited with signing up well over 30,000 people to vote.  Mr. Baker, 82, died Sunday evening (Jan 8) from complications of bone cancer, which he found out about last spring.  His daughter took over the furniture store at Quince and Perkins last year.  He is also survived by his wife of 62 years.

In addition to his voter registration work, Mr. Baker was an ardent promotor of various causes, including the Republican Party, education, being an American, buying locally made products, and a long list of charitable causes.  He also was a strong supporter of Colonial Acres, making donations to the neighborhood association.
