Found this letter in mom’s stuff. Very interesting. I typed up the letter and saved a PDF copy to make it easier to read. The letter refers to a book they wanted to publish and I found the book (at least an online copy). The link to see this book is:
Hudson Mead II (My Grandpa) led a dance band back in the early to mid 1930’s called “The Revelers Dance Band”. The scanned image is from a blank letterhead with the band’s name on it. Also I recorded mom (11/29/2016) talking about the band.
This is a desk made by Hudson Dexter Mead I (my great grandfather) who was married to Grandma Nora. Probably made in the 1930’s or thereabouts.
It was made in Chadron Nebraska with a lot of the wood coming from used wood crates. Great Grandpa also made the wooden train set which is in storage at 306 Woodside right now.
This was passed down from Hudson Mead I to Hudson Mead II to Hudson Mead III (Uncle Huddie) and then passed down to me after Uncle Huddie passed away in 2016 and for now resides in the dining at 1202 Borton.
