For those members who are not familiar with who Emile L. Morvant was, the following is a brief synopsis:

Mr. Morvant served as President of P.M.A.G.N.O. (now called ISM-GNO) from 1940-41. He was employed by Southland Sugars. He and his company supported the Association even to the point of direct financial support during World War II. He was a very active member who required the utmost professionalism of everyone. His contributions allow us today to continue to benefit from this organization which has been in existence since 1924.
