PR in North Dakota & The Birthday Club - Please Contact Me
Each person in the photograph was researched and a small window about their life was written using only the census. A photographic key was created and included here on Shades in the Labeling and Labeling Systems article. I lovingly call this photographic research method the "Birthday Club Method."
Recently I received two comments from Anonymous and PR in ND regarding that photograph.
PR in ND:
Have info on many of the ladies, and the chief in this photo (Birthday Club). I believe it was the Civic Improvement League (ladies only) formed in 1910 in LaMoure. John Freyberger was appointed chief of police in 1910 and was known as "Friend of Children" promoter of city parks in LaMoure.
Found your article searching for John Konoske...awesome work! I live 30 miles north of LaMoure and have quite alittle more info on the ladies and chief. I'm presently working on the 125th Celebration History Book for our small town, which has alot of ties to LaMoure since it is our county seat. Have not found that pic in any LaMoure history book, is it possible to obtain a copy? PR in ND
PR in ND please contact me. I would be thrilled to see my Birthday Club take their rightful place in the history of the area they called home. Please send an email to the footnoteMaven@comcast.net and I will send a copy of the Birthday Club home.
