ECV Wall of Comparative OvationsDuring the Gold Rush Days of California the organization known as E Clampus Vitas flourished throughout the gold diggings. It was sort of a parody of the solemn and mysterious fraternal orders then so popular in the states. Every member held an office of equal indignity. It was said that E Clampus Vitus existed for the purpose of promoting the welfare of widows and orphans, especially the widows. Early newspaper articles prove their deeds actually did aid needy families. Primarily, however, it was a fun organization and the antics and glorious spirit of early-day clampers lightened the cares of the Gold Rush Days and made the old frontiers ring with laughter.
