Who is the current owner of the O A Cooper mill at Humboldt? I am particularly interested in history of the power plant that was once a part of the mill, I think may have been leased to the Iowa-Nebraska Light & Power in 30s or early 40s, after early 1940s operated by Consumers Public Power District. Possible contacts for more history and photos regardig the power plant would be helpful. Co-authoring a new book on the history of public power in Nebraska and need some information for a side bar and would like to include a photo.

Schauf,

Contact the City Mayor or President of the Local Chamber of Commerce for Humbolt I am sure that they can help you out. Here is a link to the Humboldt web site that will give you their names, addresses and telephone numbers.

Business & Economic Development - Humboldt, Nebraska (http://www.ci.humboldt.ne.us/bus-econ.asp - broken link)

Here is a web site that has some pictures of the O. A. Cooper Mill that is in Humboldt.

MillPictures.com - O.A.Cooper Mill/Humbolt Flour Mill, Nebraska, Richardson Co. (http://millpictures.com/mills/details.cfm?millid=384 - broken link)

Hope that this will help you.
