Taylors Falls, Minnesota

July 1973

When we were on the boat unfortunately could not see this view since we were sitting on other side of the boat. But enjoyed our cruise anyway – down here for the day to picnic and relax. Now the sun is sinking and the river is very peaceful – not too many people here today. Probably impossible on the weekend.

Love, Tim

The “Old Man of the Dalles” and upper landing of the Dalles of St. Croix. Taylors Falls, Minn.



Not quite exact, but appropriate! The Vikings won they first play-of game and this week thanks to Pillsbury who bought out the last tickets we can all watch on TV again. Glad to hear K and bags arrived in Nairobi – hope the safari was great – we are all envious!


Memorial Stadium. At the University of Minnesota where the Gopher football teams renew each year football relations with the best teams of the country. The Golden Gophers square off on this gridiron before capacity groups of 60,000 fans, Minneapolis, Minnesota.

February 1981

It is zero C. today, cloudy and chilly. I will walk up to my shopping area but not buy much to have to carry. Bill goes to Ethiopia Sat. so I won’t need so much food for a week. A friend from IITA will be here the weekend Bill gets back, then Dave and Mary Bell will be here the next week, but they will stay in a hotel. We had a nice dinner at the airport with Lowell Hardin Tues. nite (he was on his way to NY) and Alicia was here for supper last night. Hope all is well.

Love to you, Dede

Bangkok, Thailand

October 198?

The trip over was long as usual. Got in about 11:00 pm. Just bit late. I am just lying by the pool and resting.

This hotel is very nice about like the Mandarin in Jakarta in many ways but with a larger pool!

All OK so far. Will write regularly.
Love, Bill

Greetings from the South –

We are slowly getting back into the working world. It’s tough! Marg called yesterday to say she’s having a great time in Hawaii. Non-stop as usual.

Thanks so much for taking care of us all in Brainerd. We enjoyed it, just sorry we couldn’t have stayed longer. See you Sunday.

Love, Tom

Theodore Roosevelt National Park. Petrified wood of coniferous trees can be found throughout the park. These ancestors of the present-day sequoia tell of a wetter climate and changing past environment.

Livingston, Montana

These postcards are from the turn of the century (1900). It was apparently all the rage to make your photographs into postcards and send them to people.

This one is also to my great aunt in Waterloo, Iowa.

November 1914

The beginning of the postcard is not legible.

…. They told me you have my old room and some of my left overs no doubt. Well, be good to them. How is your mother? There have been some Sunday afternoons I have thought I must run in.
Love to all, Clara

I’m pretty sure, Clara was her first cousin.
