Content Description

The collection consists of one letter and two photographs donated by Lucille (Wipf) Dalzell. Lucille Wipf, a 1949 graduate of Emery High School, had done missionary work in Japan from 1960 to 1996. In 1968, South Dakota Governor Nils Boe visited Japan for a Governor’s Conference. While in Japan, Lucille met the Governor and took a photo of him while at the Ujiyamada train station in Japan. Governor Boe, after returning to South Dakota, wrote a letter to Lucille’s parents noting his visit with Lucille in Japan. The collection includes the Boe letter and photo. Also included is a 1965 photograph, taken at Lucille’s parents’ home in Madison, of Lucille with Hisashi and Nobuko Murakami. Lucille played the organ for the couple during their wedding in Japan. A July 28, 1994 news clipping from the Emery Enterprise detailing Lucille’s missionary work is included with the accession paperwork. A photocopy was placed with the collection.
