Arthur, Lloyd 'Shorty'
Arthur, Lloyd "Shorty"
A long period of sorrowing suspense culminated in deeper grief for Mrs. Millie (Beznoska) Arthur from a telegram from the War Department stating that her son, Staff Sgt. Lloyd Arthur is now listed as killed in action. Lloyd was reported missing since April 29. He was a lower turret gunner on a B-17 Flying Fortress. Sgt. Arthur was born in North Bend on October 2, 1922. Most of his life was spent in North Bend but the family lived for a short time in Oklahoma. He was graduated from the North Bend High School with the class of 1941. Following his graduation from the North Bend High School he worked in Grand Island and in Omaha. On being inducted into the army he was assigned to the infantry in Camp Robinson, Arkansas. Later he joined the air corps and was sent to San Antonio, Texas where he received his basic training. He was sent overseas from Tampa, Florida. His plane was shot down over Brandenburg, Germany. Xerox of a portrait of Lloyd.

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.

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).

The Friday, March 3, 1950 issue of the Cass City Chronicle reported that Joan Holmberg, 1rst clarinet; Bonnie Benkelman, 2nd; Mary Wood, 3rd; and Delphine Iseler 4th, earned a first division rating at the Solo Ensemble Festival at Mt. Morris, playing the waltz "Two and Two." This quailified them to participate in the state festival at Ann Arbor on April 1, 1950. The 17 Cass City Band students who attended the festival "stopped at Frakenmuth for a chicken dinner on the way home." The same ensemble participated in the Instrumental Solo and Ensemble Festival at Elkton on March 2, 1951, earning a second division rating.
