A series of 11 photographs featuring Peggy Lee and her husband Dave Barbour’s visit to Valley City, N.D. in 1950 have been added to the Institute’s Photo Gallery collection on Digital Horizons. The photographs document the reception held by them at the home of Herman Stern after Peggy Lee’s performance at the North Dakota Winter Show. The images were scanned from the original negatives taken by Gifford Herron, Fargo Forum photographer, with a number of them used in a feature story in the Forum of March 8, 1950.
