Omar Dahle. 3 1/4" x 6 1/4" Omar Dahle, "born in Blooming Grove Township, the son of Mr. and Mrs. Jens Dahle (who served in the Civil War). Omar married Minnie Kalbeck who passed away in 1957. Omar spent his whole life in Waseca County where he operated a farm. He is the father of four sons and one daughter. He served in the House of Representatives of the Minnesota Legislature in the sessions of 1949-1951 and 1955. He is one of the most honest men I have had the pleasure of knowing. You could always know where he stood on any question. I hold Omar as a very dear friend of mine. 7-7-59"
