Nearly three years ago, in 2018, we posted the above photo from the 1950's and a short story with several questions – but one important question that we didn't ask.
Who were these two officers? In that earlier story, we remembered Hugh Oliver, who ran the tobacco shop that stood between the old Pace Theatre and the Chadron Volunteer Fire Department headquarters, and we recalled several police officers from back in that era. Butch Foster, Vernon Story, Robert Beers, Burt Holmes, and Lester Jensen, among others. In fact, we think the fellow on the right in the above photo might be Story.
Would be pleased to hear from anyone who can identify these fellows. Of course, we're continuing our quest for a good photograph of the Newsy Nook. That would be a most valued photo, indeed!
