    Dale Hubert Brumm kindly provided this photograph. On the left is a picture of him and probably two sisters (back to front): Helen Laverne, Dorothy Virginia, and Dale Brumm (children of Oliver "Clayton" and Bertha Leota (Lett) Brumm). He theorized the man wearing the cap to be Walter Lett, but Walter would have been in his 60s by the time of this photograph (taken in the late 1920s). That man doesn't seem to be that old. These may have simply been friends in the neighborhood that day, as there are no other close family members who would have had so many young children at that time.

This photograph was taken of them during "the 1930s" according to my uncle, Dale Hubert Brumm, their brother, who kindly provided a scan of it.

    • Thinking Out Loud
      A Public Appreciation

      There is nothing maudlin about the program that has been undertaken here to subscribe a sum which will assist Mrs. Dorothy Herman in some of the problems she will encounter now that she is left alone with her family. Her husband, Harold Herman, was killed in the Burlington Fruit company fire 2 weeks ago. He was a member of the city fire department.

      Various public, spirited citizens since then have indicated a laudable desire to help her . . . perhaps to raise a fund sufficient to retire the mortgage on the home the Hermans had bought and were paying for in installments. The idea caught hold with many who merely lacked leadership before giving generously.

      That leadership was supplied through a Chamber of Commerce group, and a special committee has been placed in charge. Persons wishing to make contributions to the Harold Herman fund can do so at any of the banks in Burlington or through any of these committee members: Harold Parmelee, James Lewis, II. A. Wagner, Fire Chief W. G. Middleman or Wesley Swiler. The responsibility of those accepting contributions is of the highest. We hope for most wholesome success for the entire effort.
