Readers identify men shaking hands

Several readers identified one of the men pictured in the History Center of Traverse City archive photo in the Feb. 27 Community section.

Karen Scarbrough and Sam Tesaker both identified their father, Arvid Tesaker as the man on the right in the plaid shirt. They said their father worked 43 years as a Soil Conservation District agent in Traverse City, Gaylord and Benzie County.

Scarbrough said her father was born in Minnesota and graduated from the University of Minnesota with a forestry degree. He retired from the soil conservation agency in 1975. Sam Tesaker said his father died in 1994.

Scarbrough said the man on the left might be Marce Keillor. She said Keillor was a Benzie County Soil Conservation board member.
