Corn Husking Champions - 1931  Thanks to Bill Boone for sending this article in.  From Crawfordsville Journal-Review, photo copied by Joe Boswell

Crawfordsville City Council - about 1932 (ANYONE know any of these people -- on the board the names are: Barker; Claypool; Hutchinson; Meister; McIntire and Price - of course there are more than twice that many people at that table - I'm assuming the one in the middle is the judge ?? ) Love to have this picture identified :) thanks - kz -- thanks so much to Mary Jo M who thinks her great grandfather may be the 3rd one over

C'ville Fathers - about 1945 -- thanks sooo very much to Larry Barragree for giving permission to use this one :) LOVE IT -- here is what Larry says about the picture and hopefully we can find out more of the folks -after all, it wasn't so long ago :) --- I don't recognize anyone except Marion Kirtley, back row in uniform. He was a Major, and this must have been sometime during WW2 as he obviously is in uniform. Roger Gardner said his maternal grandfather is the front row extreme left, name was Bob Sumner. From Larry: "The photo was captioned Clark Jones, Mayor. I just might take this to my neighbor Bob Rogers who is a retired banker, Elston Bank. Bob graduated CHS in 1947 so he may recognize many of them." They were obviously the "city fathers" of that era. The picture was taken in the front of the old Crawford Hotel on the northeast corner of East Main and North Green. Not many of these people are known but Dr. Marion Kirtley (back row, 4th from right in service cap); beside him (right side) is Dr. Castor Wilson; Judge Howard Sommer 2nd on right front row; John Berry 3rd front row left. Jack's grandfather, Felix Willis is 5th on the left 2nd row. Jones (front far right by Hirshburg photo kneeling in light coat); and above Bob Sumner. Dave Gerard 2nd row with hat in his hand; Dr. Byron Lingeman 3rd on right 2nd row. Sad that these are "our fathers," of Crawfordsville and so few known. . Jack Wyatt says this is the Kiwanis Club in front of the (East Green side) Crawford Hotel. Thanks to Jack Wyatt,for recognizing several. Greatly appreciated!! -

Note: Clark Jones was mayor of Crawfordsville from 1948-1952 - I do not believe that Dr. Kirtley was in a reserve unit so I'm thinking 1944-1945 (possibly when Dr. Kirtley -- fourth from right back row with service cap on - came home for a visit for the election of 1944 or as he returned after warin 1945) and they were working on a committee to elect Clark Jones. Jones was at that time, I believe, Clerk-Treasurer of the city so a step into the Mayorial position would be perfect in the 1944 election which is what I really think this is. Jones is on the far right facing the picture front row. Believe his brother Frank is by door in the back. PLEASE HELP US IDENTIFY THE PICTURE & THE FOLKS:) THANKS - kbz --
