Attention Harvard history buffs --help us with this Starline Search!

This gorgeous photo of Starline employees in Harvard, IL was taken around 1920. At that time, the company was known as Hunt, Helm, & Ferris Co. No known record exists of who is present in the picture. We would love to bring these hard working individuals "to life" by giving a name to each face. Can you help?

Stop by the library to take a look at this photo and see if you can identify anyone in the picture. Or you can just come look at a fascinating piece of Harvard history!
