LITTLE FALLS, Minn., Oct. 20 (AP) — Lt. Gov. C. Elmer Anderson and his wife, injured in an automobile accident near here Saturday, were still in St. Gabriel’s hospital here today, but attendants said both were “resting well” and probably will recover.


[Note: Lt. Governor Anderson would, in fact, recover and went on to serve as Lt. Governor until 1943, and then again from 1945 until 1951, eventually becoming Governor from 1951 to 1955.  He passed away in 1998 at the age of 85.  His obituary can be found here.]


I purchased roughly 25 original issues of the Yankton (South Dakota) Press & Dakotan, dating from 1938 to 1946. I am systematically going through every issue and will be posting the articles that include the names of individuals. I am happy to email full-size scans of any article. Feel free to ask.

  1. My husband’s family lived in Sioux Falls since about 1870 after moving from Milwaukee, Wisconsin. I look forward to seeing the different articles. His grandmother went to college in Yankton.
