"Steve: Yes, there was a Varsity theater. I am working on an article/booklet on theaters of Fort Dodge and I am concentrating on the very early period right now, 1900-1928 and the coming of the talkies. Most people remember it as the Park theater and…"

Hi Roger,

I have enjoyed your book. Thanks for writing it.  I check the FD Messenger nearly every day on the internet.  Last fall there were a couple of articles about Jonathan Dolliver. One of his relatives, James Dolliver, was a Washington State Supreme Court Justice. He was born in Fort Dodge in 1934 and died in about 2002.  I found an oral history about him and he has some stories about Fort Dodge   here is the web page: http://apps.leg.wa.gov/oralhistory/dolliver.pdf

My father, George Hendricks was FD  postmaster and I think U.S.Rep Dolliver helped him get his postmaster appointment in the 1950's.

I'm about 4 hours from Austin, and my son goes to college in Seguin which isn't far from Austin so maybe we can reconnect one of these days. Please do tell her I said Hello. Thanks for the update! Best, Marcie

Hello, Mr. Natte--(still remember you as a teacher--)
I've been trying to track down a book of yours---'Sermons in Wood, Glass and Stone' for quite a while and can't seem to find a copy. My great grandfather had a Dutch Reformed Church on his farmland, and, sometime near the turn of the 20th century, they disbanded and voted to join the Presbyterian Church in Ft. Dodge. Family lore says that they more than doubled the membership of the Presbyterian. The family has been members ever since (except for me---lapsing when moving east). So I have a special interest in the church. Any help you could give in finding a copy of the book would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks! Betty (Zenor) Pannick

Hi Roger,

Bill suggested I contact you in regards to historical images and information of Fort Dodge and Deer Creek in the late 1800's and early 1900's.
I am in Australia and currently putting together a family history book for the the "Molloy" family..... I haven't had much luck with info or photos that I can reproduce, on the net.

Can you help me in any way? '

Linda
