Darrin Nelson, over at his fine blog "Great Northern Railway Mansfield Branch Line (1909-1985) and the Waterville Railway Co. (1910-1954)," has the folks in the first photo identified as such:
"Some of these people were on the Douglas County Historical Society at the time. L to R: Forrest Barnes (1912-2002), Alice Jacobsen (1925-2013), Roxanne Viebrock (1912-2004), person unknown, Edna Slusser-George (1907-2003), Glorian Eggers (1925-2008) and Nadra Betcher. "
Darrin says: "The two men on the left and center are unknown and the man on the right is Oliver Ruud (1899-1994)."
Darrin says:"Scotty Watson (Central Washington Grain Growers' Manager at the time), Alice Jacobsen (local farmer) and Edna Slusser George (local historian)."
