Content Description

The collection consists of photographs and correspondence concerning an Arthur R. Hanson. Arthur Hanson was born April 2, 1899 to Henry and Annie (Neilson) Hanson. Arthur’s older siblings were named Elma, Anna and Henry. Arthur’s father died in February of 1904. The family is listed in the 1905 South Dakota State Census as residing in Day County, Valley Township, T121 R58, section 10. Annie is also listed in the 1909 Day County atlas at the same location. Arthur registered for the draft in South Dakota and one of the photographs is of a man in a World War I era uniform, presumably Arthur. By the 1930 census, Arthur was living in Chicago and working as a dentist. The photographs offer a collection of both South Dakota and Chicago photographers. A collection of smaller photos are presumably of the Hanson family in Day County. Arthur died on November 29, 1988 and is buried at Greenmore Memorial Gardens in Barnett, Missouri.
