Dear Mr. Bergseng, 4/7/2010
I came upon your fascinating site by accident, searching for a name on the internet. I suppose I tried that particular one because it is so
distinctive: Otha William Fenton Snyder, or OWF Snyder. He was a physician in Chicago, and my grandmother used to tell of working as a
receptionist or clerk in his office some time between about 1917 and his death in 1925.Mike & Donna Horstman Richland, Washington
