Before I ever donate any books that may have come from Fort Stockton to the Friends of the Library book sale, I always have to check them for goodies. Janice, Walter's mom, was an absolute demon for tucking things inside books whether they were related to the book or not.
Here is evidence, found tucked into a song book for children, published in 1938, that the Walter L. Buenger, Sr. family were a creative force in Fort Stockton.
From the Fort Stockton Pioneer, 1969--"The front door of the Walter Buenger residence at 705 N. Missouri presents a holiday welcome which won first prize in the door decoration contest judged here Sunday night by members of the Fort Stockton Garden Club."
