Scope & Content The Bud and Charlotte Onstine Collection seeks to document the history of Charlotte Onstine’s family through paper records and photographs. The bulk of the paper records have to do with Charlotte Bowman’s time as a student in Moorhead both in elementary school through report cards, and Moorhead High School through the addition of programs, and material from her high school reunions. The photos in the collection document the family and also early scenes of the Moorhead area. The majority of the people in the photos are identified though most are undated.
