Here are two photographs of Fred Atkins, manager, and Tim Kelley, board president, at a DS&O Rural Electric Cooperative substation in Abilene, Kansas. DS&O Electric Cooperative is an electric utility located in Solomon, Kansas. It was established during the Great Depression as part of the federal recovery effort to bring the advantages and economic stimulus of electric power to rural Kansas. In 1991, Smoky Valley Electric Cooperative in Lindsborg, Kansas, merged with DS&O, adding to the Cooperative's coverage area and member base. It was named DS&O because members were from Dickinson, Saline, and Ottawa counties.

Date: 1938
