Do you know Herman Keloof?

Do you know Herman Keloof?

We wish we knew this dapper fellow in his glasses and cap. But alas, this chap is a mystery. And while most of the individuals we feature here are unknowns to us, Mr. Keloof is an even bigger mystery for us. But here is what we have been able to find out.

Clinton Orla Dedmore was likely the photographer. He began his photography business in North Platte, Nebraska in April of 1919.

Beyond that, we are lost. Most likely this is due to the spelling of Herman's name since it could be "Herman" or "Hamon" or "Kelloof" or "Kelloog" or something else. But in the end, we still like this dapper young man. So if you know him or his family, please drop us a line.
