Dick Smith, of Edray, was the first Superintendent. This postcard features a photograph taken around 1935 following construction of the long building, carpenter shop, runways and residences. Winston Herold, of Minnehaha Springs, and C.C.C. workers did the building, stone work and landscaping. The hatchery is still in operation today.
