Folder 27: Letnes, Lawrence John

Fern Letnes gave the photograph and news clippings to Judy Horsch, daughter of Joseph M. Tucker.

This includes a mini-biography of Lawrence John Letnes who was in charge of the Harvest Brigade during the summer of 1944. The story states that Letnes "was the aerial liaison man who kept a fleet of 20 self-propelled combines rolling across the state of Kansas northward to the Canadian border to harvest grain that may have remained uncut because of the critical shortage of manpower and machines during WWII."

The photograph is of John Letnes standing in front of his airplane. The side of the airplane reads, "Self-Propelled Combines, L. J. Letness, Representative, Grand Forks, N. D."
