We welcomed the donation of the Erma [Dietrich] Cook collection of Dietrich family photographs and documents recently. These were preserved and donated by Gary and Joyce Clyde of Seattle, Washington, who cared for Erma in the final two decades of her long life. She died in 1999 at the age of 101. Most are well identified, and they contain treasures such as the lobby of Bremen State Bank in the PE Dietrich building, Dietrich family portraits, and several views of the Dietrich-Bowen house soon after it was completed in 1902.

Many of these have now been scanned and restored and are available on our Flickr account.
