A. M. Peterson of Atlantic, aged 65, and well known in this territory, was found dead Monday evening at his farm northwest of Griswold in Wright Township. He apparently had suffered a heart attack and passed away without anyone knowing of his plight. Mr. Peterson was found dead near a corn crib by Leo Tanner, who farms the Peterson place, upon arriving at the farmyard following his return after attending some field work.
Alvin Magnis Peterson was born in Wisconsin on June 29, 1879 . He was united in marriage to Miss Mary Schmidt of Griswold and following their marriage lived at numerous places, including Kansas City and St. Louis, Mo., for many years. Mr. Peterson was an electrician by trade and employed many years with the Western Electric Company, primarily as an installation engineer for telephone exchanges. Several years ago Mr. Peterson retired and he and wife have since lived in Atlantic. Mr. Peterson was a veteran of World War I. Left to mourn his passing are his widow, and a few distant relatives.
