A map drawn by Axel Lindberg (1895-?), "a boy at Weskan who has been in this country less than one year from Sweden, and he has only attended school five months." This map is one of several drawn by grade school children for a contest organized by Judge J. C. Ruppenthal of Russell, Kansas. The maps were to meet a "requirement of presenting historical data, together with excellence and accuracy of drawing." The maps are drawn over a template representing a legal (numbered) township and have keys on the back or on separate sheets. The map covers Township 15 South, Range 42 West, the Stockholm Township. It features creeks, farms, churches and schools. A letter relating to this contest can be viewed at Unit ID 309731.
