Meet the Author


Duane E. Stabler selected over 200 images from his large private collection of Walworth County postcards to include in this book. Stabler is a native of neighboring McPherson County. His interest in genealogy led to his interest in postcards, and it is from there that he first discovered postcards as a way of looking into the past. He remains active in the pursuit of his heritage and of postcards that are a window into history.
