John Louis “Jack” Minter, was a department store executive interested in architecture, travel and finance.

He fell in love with Dorothy McKelvy, who represented Albany when Charles Lindbergh visited Abilene on September 26, 1927. A scrapbook found on the shelves of an unrelated Abilene family sheds new light on the twists and turns in their lives during the war years.
