Walter Breuning

Walter Breuning

At the beginning of the new century - that's the 20th century - Breuning moved with his family from Melrose, Minn., to De Smet, S.D., where his father had taken a job as an engineer. That first decade of the 1900s was literally a dark age for his family. They had no electricity or running water. A bath for young Walter would require his mother to fetch water from the well outside and heat it on the coal-burning stove. When they wanted to get around, they had three options: train, horse and foot. His parents split up and Breuning moved back to Minnesota in 1912. The following year, as Henry Ford was creating his first assembly line, the teenager got a low-level job with the Great Northern Railway in Melrose. #Walter_Breuning
