History Mystery: Who is this?

This man was a local Rotary president in 1971. What’s his name?

‘History Mystery’ is a weekly feature of the Perham Focus. Working in partnership with the History Museum of East Otter Tail County, we will publish a ‘mystery photo’ each week, challenging you, our readers, to answer a question about it. If you have a personal story that relates to the photo, or have new details about its contents, we will work with the museum to have that additional information put on record.

Contact us at 346-5900 or email

Congratulations to Marlys Lueders, the first to correctly guess the answer to last week’s mystery photo of Ottertail in the early 1900s.
