History Mystery - April 3

Do you know any of these members of the 1927 Pequot Lakes High School boys’ basketball team? Find the answer on page 9A. The March 20 issue of the Echo Journal featured a History Mystery photo of Nisswa queen contestants from 1946, with one unidentified woman. Jim Dullum, lifelong Nisswa residents, believes the woman’s last name is Henke, and perhaps her first name is Viola. He has the same photo hanging in the basement at Martin’s Sport Shop in downtown Nisswa. Dullum said her father worked at the lumberyard in Nisswa. Do you have a historical photo to submit for our History Mystery feature? Send it to Nancy Vogt at
