PR in North Dakota & The Birthday Club - Please Contact Me

Those who read the footnoteMaven and Shades Of The Departed know there is one post that occupies a very special place in my heart. That post would be, Finding That Two Hundredth Edwardian Woman In A White Dress. It is the first post where I researched a photograph from my collection for information concerning those who were pictured, affectionately called The Birthday Club Method.

The Birthday Club - Lamoure, N.D. - 1911

The Key

Recently I received two comments from Anonymous and PR in ND regarding that photograph.

PR in ND:

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

Anonymous On Shades Of The Departed:

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.

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.
