Scope Notes:
This collection focuses on the Kornder family: Dr. Louis H. Kornder married Gertrude Elphick in 1915, and they had one child named Roger L. Kornder in 1919.  It is composed of photographs and documents.
 
Louis was born in Wisconsin in 1888.  He went to medical school at the University of Chicago and Northwestern University and graduated in 1918.  He also had residencies in Vienna and London in the late 1920s.  He became a junior partner at the Hagaboeck-Stokes-Maxwell Medical Clinic in Davenport.  He retired from medicine in 1954.  Additionally, he became president of the Davenport Public Museum board in the early 1950s.  He retired from the positon after 17 years in 1968.  He participated in many local organizations and he enjoyed travelling.  He passed away in 1973.
 
Gertrude was born in London and graduated from Chicago Musical College in 1907.  She taught students to play the piano and pipe organ.  She was also involved with the First Presbyterian Church and work for choral societies.  She and her whole family enjoyed traveling and gardening.  Gertrude lived to be 94, and she passed away in 1979.
 
Roger was born Dec. 14, 1919 in Davenport, Iowa.  He earned a master's degree in biology from the University of Iowa.  He taught science and art until 1972 when he retired.  He played the piano well just like his mother, and he belonged to many organizations like the Putnam Museum, Outing Club, Etude Club and First Presbyterian Church.  Roger lived to be 79, and he passed away in 1999.
