This is a photograph of DS&O Rural Electric Cooperative's employees at the office in Solomon, Kansas. People in the photograph are identified as: front row (left to right) Red Conner, Dick Boyer, John Neilson, John Duck, Ray Eisenhauer, and Rich Warner, back row (left to right) Florence Ruth, Emil Samuelson, Rit Luke, Hank Paul, Dick Lumley, and Bill Wolfe. DS&O Electric Cooperative 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.
