Letter to the Editor:

Many longtime residents of Story City will remember my father, Milton D. Mussehl, who passed away on Dec. 5, 2013. My sister Kris and I have donated memorabilia from our dad’s career in music to the Story City Historical Society. A display is being developed and will include his band director’s uniform, batons, a 1959 concert band photo, a Story City Men’s Chorus photo, and variety of other items.

As a memorial to my father, I would ask that any musicians who are in these photos or who are family members of these individuals, to please visit the Story City Historical Society located at 619 Grand Avenue. In memory of my father, my gift to these musicians is a reproduction photo of the Story City High School 1959 Concert Band or a photo of the Story City Men’s Chorus. If you are unable to personally visit the museum, you may contact the director of the Historical Society at 515/460-1749 to have a photo mailed to you.

My dad loved music, Story City and his musicians. Thank you for making special memories and bringing such joy to his life.
