National Active and Retired Federal Employees (NARFE)

Chapter 0813 of the National Active and Retired Federal Employees met April 15 at Ponderosa Steakhouse in Greensburg for its monthly meeting.

The meeting was opened by Vice-President Andrea Wagner welcoming those present and followed with Kay Hineman leading the group with the Pledge of Allegiance and the invocation.

For the monthly program, VP Andrea Wagner introduced Lori Osting, librarian from the Greensburg – Decatur County public library giving a program on the “The Greensburg Glass Negative Collection.” In 2012 , more than 200 glass negatives were discovered in an attic of a building on the Greensburg square that was getting a new roof. After a couple of years it was discovered that nearly 200 more glass negatives were discovered that were sold at an auction house and on eBay.

Fortunately, many of the negatives of the eBay seller were given back. Many of the glass negatives date back to the Civil War era. One of the first negatives to be restored was of an Arnold Murray who was born in 1847 and lived in Rush County and who served as a drummer boy in the 123rd Indiana Infantry organized in Greensburg and he is buried in East Hill Cemetery in Rushville.

Ms. Osting passed out a pamphlet of many of the photos restored and short history of the photos. Also the pamphlets explained the complex process of restoration to recover the images of the glass negatives. Thanks to Lori Osting for her very interesting program.

Following the program, a business meeting with secretary’s minutes and treasurer’s report being read and approved. Other chapter business had the legislative officer, service officer and other committee reports given. Membership in NARFE is also open to retired military members and their spouses, contact Eva Vanatta at 765-629-2720 for interested individuals or questions.
