We do not know how the person in the clipping is related to the original recipe box owner.

Based on the research we found the couple is still alive and therefore we will not publish any additional information about them.

The announcement states LA.

The announcement reads:

Mr. and Mrs. Leo E. Howe, 6900 SW Fourteenth Street, announce the engagement of their daughter, Debra Ann, and Private Gary Lee Shadbolt of Ft. Polk, La, son of Leroy Shadbolt of Fort Dodge and Mrs. Shadbolt. The couple is planning an April 21 wedding. Miss Howe is employed by Corky’s Restaurants. Her fiance is serving with the Armed Forces.

I'm so happy to have found your site. I love vintage recipes and I'm excited to try some of your finds. I think the recipes from a newspaper, as well as the clipping, probably came from The Des Moines Register. It was the only Sunday paper when I was growing up in Iowa. My grandmother always clipped recipes from the paper. Also, the "La" isn't a typo-Ft Polk is an Army installation in Lousiana, so La is the abbreviation for the correct state.
