Happy Birthday, Nick

From the Odebolt History Pages:
Thelma Dresselhuis Writes

"The state was paving Highway 175 [then identified as Highway 35] and also rented offices in the upstairs [of the electric office] that were used by a goodly number of engineers, some just out of college, and who, with their wives, became fast friends. One couple, Frank and Helen Nolte, became the parents of Nick Nolte, an outstanding movie actor. They were a lively and fun group."

From the Digital Archives of the Odebolt Public Library and the Odebolt Historical Museum:

The Odebolt Chronicle, November 3, 1938
Mr. and Mrs. F. A. Nolte, formerly of Cherokee, have taken the downstairs apartment in the Mrs. Elizabeth Fuchs home.  They moved in Monday.

The Odebolt Chronicle, October 26, 1939
Mr. and Mrs. George Dresselhuis entertained Sunday evening at an informal party when they invited in a few friends.  The event was in honor of Mr. and Mrs. Franklin Nolte, who left this week for Omaha, Neb.

The Odebolt Chronicle, February 20, 1941
Mr. and Mrs. Franklin Nolte of Omaha, Neb., are the proud parents of a 7½ pound son, born Saturday, Feb. 8.  He was named Nicholas.  The Noltes were residents of Odebolt, moving away Oct. 24, 1939.
