Photo: Schulte Family in Alpine - circa 1937. From the collection of Kenneth C. Schulte.
By Kenneth C. Schulte
The two things that have led to my connection and fascination with Alpine are my visits with my grandmother, Marguerite (Borden) Head or “Zuella”, and the Foss family in the 1950s, and the exquisite art work of Leonard Lester (see separate articles titled The Marguerite (Borden) and Robert Head Family of Alpine” and “Leonard Lester – Artist”).
Most of the information on the Schulte family presented here is from 1) conversations with my father, Claude H. Schulte; 2) my grandfather, Christopher Henry Schulte, whose personal history was typed by his daughter, Ruth in 1942; and 3) supplemented by interviews with and records kept by my Aunt Ruth Schulte, including her mother’s diary.
