This was a scanned image published in one of Mary Dell Wallace's newsletters in 1991. Mary
appears to have found this amongst some of her mother's pictures and posted it in the newsletter
asking if anyone knew who it was. She indicated it was on a postcard, and on the other side it said:
"Florence Woody Wilderson - Dec. 1913". It was addressed to Mr. & Mrs. Oliver Woody,
Monroe, Iowa
