1945 Michigan Train Crash Memorabilia

The Michigan Community Club would like to thank the following people for sharing their 1945 Michigan Train Crash memorabilia with us: 

Ruth Stevens, Lakota, allowed us to make copies of her mother's scrapbook of the crash.  Ruth's mother was Maxine Munson 

Davis Rainsberry, Lakota, borrowed us his train crash scrapbook that he put together in 1945 when he was just 13. 

Elaine Fisk, Lakota, lent us four pictures that were taken at the crash site. 

We also appreciate all the people who have taken time to write down their stories of the crash and mail or email them to us. 

We hope to run some of the old articles from these scrapbooks in upcoming Lakota American and Ness Press papers.

Thank you for taking an interest in this project.  We hope to see you all at the train crash monument dedication ceremony on Sat., July 21st, 2012 at 11AM at the Veterans Memorial Park, 100 Broadway, Michigan, ND.
