The Organized Reserve's 61st Cavalry Division was constituted 15 October 1921 from the perceived need for additional cavalry units after World War I. It numbered in succession of the Regular Army Divisions, which were not all active at its creation. The Division was officially disbanded on 30 January 1942 although most of its personnel had been reassigned in 1941. The unit was nicknamed "The Foragers".
The 61st Cavalry Division was headquartered in New York City. The Division was composed of personnel from New York and New Jersey. The Division Headquarters was initially located in Rochester, New York but moved to New York City in 1922.
