The collection consists of photographs, news clippings, correspondence, family photographs and military records relating to the Kuborn family from Sanborn County, South Dakota. The majority of the collection deals with items pertaining to Harold Kuborn and his service during World War II. The items include photographs, correspondence, news clippings and military records. Also included is a black and white (7x9) photograph of the “John Kuborn Brothers” dating to the 1910s included are Jim, Nick, Tone, Isador, Matt and John. The photo is found in the Artesian (S.D.) history book on page 153. John and Francis Kuborn came to Dakota Territory in 1883, settling near Epiphany (S.D.). The family would later move to a farm near Artesian. The collection also features Kuborn family photographs. One in particular shows the family around a number of bullheads after a successful day of fishing. There is a sod house photo taken near Hettinger (N.D.). There is a World War I era portrait photograph of a soldier in uniform. This is believed to be a photograph of Anton Kuborn as he was the only brother to serve in World War I.
