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.

Hi Roger: Was home for our 45th class reunion on Oct 1-2. In talking about what used to be, was there ever a theatre called the Varsity located along Central Avenue?

Roger: I checked through my old snapshots and couldn't find any photos of the theaters. Sorry!

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? '

Hi Mr. Natte: Hope you remember me from North Junior High. I think I had you when you were first a student teacher. Plan on getting your new book on Fort Dodge. Can you tell me who is sitting next to JFK in the car on your cover photo? Merry Christmas

Roger,
I was unable to attend the book signing due to me being snowed in. Was it a success? I will do my best to stop by the library one of these days and see if your around. Perhaps I could recieve the signing then. Haave a great holiday!
At 6:01pm on December 1, 2008, JD Rockafellow said…
I will surely let you know if I come across anything of the sorts. I will also check into your other books. Is there going to be a book signing in the future?

Roger, Thank you so much for publishing your book on the history of Fort Dodge. I have wanted to read about our towns history for a long time, and along with the great photos, make this an excellent read. Its nice to know there are people that live here that wanted to exploit our rich history.

Thanks again!

Roger,

KFJY's original wave length as they called them back then was 1220. That is now the frequency of KJAN AM in Atlantic, Iowa where I began my radio career. Here is a listing of radio station's in 1924...
