Identifying Lincoln Highway group from 1992

Long-time LHA members will recognize the photo below as the first organizational meeting of the Lincoln Highway Association — taken 9 am, Saturday, October 31, 1992, in front of the City State Bank in Ogden, Iowa. The 44 attendees came from 7 states. Hard to believe but already the history of the new LHA is fading. The names were preserved when they signed in but only a third can be matched to the picture. Van and Bev Becker of the Iowa LHA are trying to identify them all — can you help? Click the image to see it larger.
