Died in the Battle of Carrizal.
Camp Adair was named in honor of Henry Rodney Adair, a West Point graduate and descendant of Oregon pioneers.
Lieutenant Adair, an officer in the 10th Cavalry, was the first Oregonian killed in the 1916 Mexican border clash.
When General Pershing pushed over the Mexican border in search of the bandit general Pancho Villa, Lt. Adair wiped out two machine gun nests and accounted for more than 30 Mexican bandits before he was killed.
