Additional information from Chester Salter relating to
1992-123, from a May 19, 1993 interview.
 
*   Chester's son, David, was born April 15, 1934 and died August 5, 1958.
 
* Robert Brown Sr.'s occupation was mainly real estate. He owned a hotel in Brainard, MN for a number of years. It was mainly a summer vacation hotel. In the winters, when it was slow, he and his wife would live in Tucson, AZ. There they purchased various properties which they rented out. Fifteen years before retiring to Tucson, AZ they purchased a resort in Alexandria, MN (photo in collection).
 
* Chester's mothers name is Emma (Peters) Salter. Born in Chaska, MN, 1879 and died August 8, 1979.
 
* Chester's career began with some difficulty. He wanted to attend the University of Minnesota (beginning Winter quarter 1921), however his high school in Davenport did not end until after the university quarter started. Through special arrangements with his principal he was able to earn enough credits to graduate early. He enrolled at the University of Minnesota on January 2, 1921. He began working toward a business major. At this particular time the U. of M. was having a fund raising project for a World War I war memorial. The memorial was the Veterans Stadium (which was torn down in 1990-92). He donated $200.00, payable in regular payments after college. He was able to convince a number of his friends to donate. His efforts would not go unnoticed.
    One quarter before graduation it was realized that Chester needed to take 5, 3 credit courses...an 'overload.' He was able to take the 'overload' through special permission by the dean.
    After his credit load was settled, the School of Business dean called and offered him a job of cleaning up the outstanding debts from the fund raising project. At first Chester refused due to his credit load. The dean said to give him one day to work out an idea. It was arranged that Chester could cut 3 of his 5 courses in exchange for handling the project. This was agreeable.
    Chester was able to 'limp in and limp out' by January 1925.
 During school he was the editor of the Minnesota Daily, the U. of M. school newspaper.
    Upon returning to Davenport he began looking for a job relating to underwriting...a special interest he acquired in college.
    He began work with Priester, Quail and Cundy, Inc. H. S. Priester, President. J. J. Quail, Vice-President and secretary. R. G. Gundy, Vice-President and treasurer. Investment Bankers located at 300-303 First National Bank Building, Davenport, IA 52803.
    In 1926, he went to work. One year in the office (underwriting) and then selling. Most of the work was related with power and light companies.
    At this point in time electrical lighting inside homes began taking hold. The Central State Power and Light, a utility holding company. Electricity went from city to county provision, then taken over by private investments. The single investments multiplied. (This area of information was sketchy at best)
    After 6 months working in the office, Chester spoke with Henry Priester about selling. His first route took him to West Branch (used the freight train due to the dirt roads being impassible). Sold $25,000 off list (quite good), called back to the office to see next stop, he was told to go to Cedar Rapids. He kept going back to Cedar Rapids in the following years. Cedar Rapids became the headquarters for light and power companies. Eventually, the travel back and forth prompted Chester to move his family to Cedar Rapids in 1935 leaving Priester, Quail and Cundy for the Merchants National Bank (by 1935 all of his children were born). A considerable amount of refinancing of subsid. company of light and power companies was occurring...an ideal situation for Chester as an
underwriter.
    His work brought him into contact with Albert Andrius (sp). He had a feed business in Lester, IA. He was trying to get farmers to plant soybeans then he would process them. Chester recognized the rational in this and they 'hooked together right off the bat.'
    The McMillian family in Indiana was actually processing soybeans at this time, however it was very inefficient. But due to WWII the McMillian family was able to get the German technology for a solvent plant in exchange for cotton which the Germans needed. It was done in this manner due to the embargo with German--only trade was allowed. The solvent plant went up in Fort Wayne, In. The solvent plant sliced the soybean instead of pressing it, thus recovering more oil. The oil was in demand due to the war (WWII). The troops were sent the main body of nutritional resources, thus an alternate nutrition product was needed for the public. Soybean flour and oil was the answer. Soybean by-products were proven to replace the nutritional value of meats proteins.
   Due to the need for an alternative nutrition source the soybean flour production was encouraged by the U.S. government. Even with the new solvent plants the estimated processing of 50 tons per day was not possible. The soybean needed to be dehaul to obtain a loss of .02 % verses .18 %. Dehauling exposed the center where the oil is located.
    In 1941, Chester went to work for the McMillian Flour Mill.
    Chester found a company in Canada which developed and utilized a dehualing method. He obtained the copyrights, sent it to the McMillian plant. With this new technology it was possible to achieve 100 tons a day of processed flour.
    To sell the public on the idea of using soybean flour Chester developed the idea of hosting backyard receptions (412 Rushome, Davenport, IA), serving foods made from soybean flour. He also developed a cookbook with others from McMillian. The flour was sold in 2 lb. bags.
    At this point, Truman ordered the bombing of Japan and the war ended. The urgent need for soybean by-products as a nutritional resource diminished.
    Today soybean flour is called 'helper.' A soybean by-product LECITHIN is commonly used in chocolate.
 
* Chester married Margeret Brown June 18, 1926. Divorced in 1957.
 
* Dr. David Stergus Fairchild Jr. established his career in the medical core of the army. Reached rank of cornel, maybe brigadier. Died in a car crash in VA during an ice storm. He actually survived the crash, but died a month later in the hospital. His wife was killed instantly. He had one son who followed his footsteps by establishing a medical career within the army.

St. Katherine’s School Collection (2006-24)
Inclusive Dates c. 1900
 
Scope Notes
 
This collection documents student life at St. Katherine’s School in Davenport. The photographs were taken and/or acquired by Hattie Soloman Levy, paternal grandmother of donor Gertrude Levy. Hattie Soloman attended St. Katherine's School for 6-8 months sometime around 1900. She was from Cedar Rapids. The donor, her mother and 3 sisters also attended St. Katherine’s. Donor's father is Mortimer S. Levy. [Thanksgiving menu is marked "99" and one photo is labeled June 1990, so Hattie may have attended in late 1899 through spring 1900.]
