Upon receipt of R. W. Crum Award, 1962, being congratulated by wives of Highway Research Board engineers. In 1948 the Highway Research Board established an award in recognition of outstanding achievement in the field of transportation research. This award was known as the Highway Research Board Distinguished Service Award until 1952, when the Executive Committee redesignated it the Roy W. Crum Distinguished Service Award as a memorial to the Board's director, Roy W. Crum, who served as head of the HRB staff from 1928 until his death in 1951. Outstanding achievement consists of the performance of distinguished service, the production of fundamental or developmental research, or the administration, promotion, or fostering of outstanding research that in the judgment of the Executive Committee is worthy of the award.

This was in a group of tintypes originally belonging to Louisa Benkelman Schwegler. These tintypes appear to be of Louisa and her brothers, all children of Adam and Catherine Benkelman of Cass City. Alvin Benkelman, Jr., a great grandson of of Adam and Catherine, believes this to be a photo of their son Benjamin Franklin Benkelman Sr. This is based on his comparison to other family and group photos owned and labeled by his late father, Alvin Benkelman Sr. However, based on Marjory Schwegler Battel's identificaton of the various Benkelman sons from a group photo taken around the same time period, it is possible that this might instead be Ben's older brother, William.

In High School, Ben was a star athlete. He was on the baseball, basketball, football, and track teams--four years each, earning a total of 16 letters. He went to Kalamazoo College on a football scholarship. They were the Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association (MIAA) Champions in 1919. The MIAA is the Nation's oldest collegiate conference. Ben recalls that one of the games he played was against "the Gipper," the legendary George Gipp of the University of Notre Dame. After a year of college, he returned to Cass City to help his parents close their general store. Ben is on the front row, seated, and is the fifth player from the right hand side (seventh from the left). Jason Mann, a collector of vintage sports team photos, purchased an identical copy of this photo on Ebay.

Benkelman, Charles
A photo from the collection of Louisa Benkelman Schwegler, labeled Charles Benkelman. Based on the age of this photo, this is likely of her cousin Charles Benkelman (born 1866) of Denver, Colorado, the son of her Uncle George. It is possible, however, that it might instead by of her nephew Charles Adam Benkelman (born 1888), the son of her brother George Adam. Both families were ranchers and lived near Denver, Colorado.

Dorus is in the middle, with E.B "Chick" Schwaderer to his left and "Buck" UNKNOWN to the right. In a December 24, 1915 Cass City Chronicle article it was noted, "Wednesday was 'Sod Buster Day' at high school and several of the boys exhibited striking new ideas in male attire." As Dorus had graduated several years earlier, it appears this was an annual event at the High School, and this particular photo was taken at one of the earlier festivities. Dorus was a graduate of the Cass City High School class of 1912, and E.B. Schwaderer graduated in 1913.
