The blurb about Goldenstein in 1926 reads "A Goldenstein who hails from Golden. Ah yea, his very silence speaks for him. 'Silence is golden.' "
Someone really played up the Golden reference in the 1926 yearbook. The town of Golden was not named for the Goldensteins. In fact, Jurgen had a family of Goldenstein first cousins who also lived in the same general area.
Interesting pictures. I'm not certain if Goldenstein graduated from Carthage College or not--that's something I will need to follow up on. Goldenstein did serve in the United States Marine Corps and appears on muster rolls from the late summer of 1928 through October of 1953. If he did graduate from Carthage College, it would have been in 1928.
Update: According to the 1928 Rambler (p. 31), Goldenstein graduated in 1928 from Carthage College as a zoology major and was a 1923 of Golden Community High School.
Goldenstein's sister, Tjode (Goldenstein) Habben (1881-1954) is my great-grandmother.
