Men of Eatonville (ca. 1903)

This fabulous shot comes from the Smith family. The only men named here are: Front Row Rudolph Fitzer and Arthur Fredericksen. If anyone can shed light on the other guys, please let me know.

Rudolph was a member of the school board in the 1920s, a town council man and also built a small sawmill in Eatonville in 1923.

Arthur Fredricksen was the son of Danish parents, Jens N. and Mattie Fredericksen came to the U.S. in 1880. After a while they moved to a farm near Clear Lake and Arthur attended the Clear Lake School. He was one of the charter members of the Improved Order of the Red Man (1903).
