Annual Meeting Completed!

2019 Annual Meeting

Members and friends gathered Sunday afternoon for their Annual Meeting.  The program featured a video, The Ghost Army,  showing the role that art students played during World War II.  A hand-picked group of American GI’s undertook a bizarre mission to create a traveling road show of deception on the battlefield of Europe, with the Nazi Germany Army as their audience. 

Following the video the November meeting was held. 

Christmas Open House will be held Saturday, December 7 from 12-4 pm. At the museum.

Missouri Bicentenial Quilt

67,000 stitches needed to create the quilt square for Jefferson County for the Missouri Bicentennial quilt to be traveling the state. The other 113 counties also need to show their completed design by Sept 1.

Our own Allen Flamm drew the picture and Patti Allen of St. John’s Lutheran Church quilted the piece.

1922 New Year’s Day

Charles Croy Nahlik has provided a beautiful photo of more of Arnold’s historic residents.

This photo is of Harry Frederitizi (seated) and his second wife, Lulu. Harry was a Justice of the Peace for Arnold, and is Charles’ grandfather. The man standing is Michael Vogel, and he is Lulu’s nephew. The woman standing is Verna, but we aren’t sure of her last name.

This photo was taken January 1, 1922, at the dawn of a new year.

In the prior month, on Dec 1, 1st US helium-filled dirigible makes 1st flight. And Dec 4, American Professional Football Association Championship, Cubs Park, Chicago: Chicago Staleys beat Buffalo All-Americans, 10-7 in de facto championship game after teams tied in standings.

The Roaring 20’s had barely begun, and WWII was still a long way off.

If you have more info about the photo, please comment below, or contact the AHS Museum.
