More People of Old Sugar Land

Some of you may have heard that Walter Klahn, husband of Barbie Jones Klahn (SLHS '57) and former employee of Imperial Sugar Company, died a few days ago.  (I want to thank my aunt, Mayme Rachuig Hause (SLHS '48), for sending me this obituary.)  My condolences go to Walter's family.  Here are a couple of photos of him in the Engineering Department of Imperial Sugar, sometime around 1960.

Walter is second from the front, next to the wall.

Walter is on the far left, receiving his Christmas gift from A. H. Weth, head of the Engineering Department.

I found the following document in a very old Imperial scrapbook.  I think it is a draft of an obituary that appeared in the Texas Industrial News in 1930, when Dr. Deatherage died.  I hope to find more information on Dr. Deatherage.

The following photographs come from Leon & Bettye Anhaiser.  They were in Ray Anhaiser's scrapbook.

Ray as a 1947 graduate of Sugar Land High School.

An undated photo, but it may be 1940 when Sugar Land High School organized its first marching band. Elementary and junior high musicians marched with the big kids in those days.

Ray with an unidentified friend sometime in the mid 1940s.

Ray on the far left with other band members at a remote performance on KFRD in October 1950.  I assume they were playing at the Fort Bend County Fair.

Ray with the Anhaiser family's dairy cow they pastured just north of 6th St. near their home.

The Class of 1947 as 5th 6th graders.  Ray is third from the left in the back row.

Some members of the Class of '47 as 1st graders.  They are at the corner of Wood & First Streets.  The Lakeview campus is behind them.

Ray is on the left.  The Texas Rhythm Boys (?) are performing on Brenham's AM radio station, which you can read about here.

The Sugar Land State Bank building in the 1960s before many changes which transformed it into the building housing the Frost Bank until recently (relatively speaking).
