Hi Carolyn, I was at the MNHS tonight, did a little searching for you.
From North Branch Review, North Branch MN
Thursday August 12, 1920 Page 1, col. 6:
News was received here yesterday that Mrs. Fred Drews of Minneapolis was drowned while canoeing with a friend on Lake Harriet, Monday night. The body was found Tuesday afternoon and was identified by her husband who knew nothing of the accident until he read it in the papers. Fred is on the fire department and was on duty when the accident happened. Mrs. Drews was a daughter of Mrs. And Mortenson of Harris and a sister-in-law of Mrs. Earl Rush of this place. She leaves two children 3 and 5 years old.

Card of Thanks
We wish to extend our heartfelt thanks to many kind friends and neighbors for the kindness and sympathy shown us during our recent sad bereavement, the death of our beloved wife and mother, daughter and sister, Mrs. Fred Drews and for the many beautiful floral offerings.
Mr. Fred Drews & Children
Mrs. A Mortinson and Family

I also have two articles from Minnapolis papers. Please e-mail me your address and I will snail mail them to you. Too long to type here.
