Chaney scrapbook & photo album
Duane and Shirley Chaney (Council Bluffs, Iowa) were enthusiastic square dancers in the early 1950s. They attended Square Dance Institutes with Les Gotcher at Kirkwood Lodge (Osage Beach, Missouri) in 1953, 1954, and 1955. Shirley collected photographs and documents from their square dance events and assembled a scrapbook and photo album, including careful identifications of people in the pictures. In all, the book presents a detailed look at the activities of square dancers in the Midwest at this period when modern square dancing was getting started. The items shown here are a few samples from the book. The photos on the second page show the young dancers from the Lake of the Ozarks demonstration team.
