    An Inventory of His Papers at the Minnesota Historical Society

    A third group of correspondents centers on William P. Hapgood and the circle of people who came to Rainy Lake through him. Hapgood, president of the Columbia Conserve Co. of Indianapolis, owned the so-called "Japanese" group of islands in Rainy Lake, of which The Mallard was one. Oberholtzer bought The Mallard from Hapgood, and much of his correspondence with Hapgood and others from 1920 to 1926 concerns this purchase. Hapgood's niece Ruth, her husband Sewell Tyng, and their friends Penelope (Pep) Turle and John and Katherine (Kit) Bakeless were frequent visitors to Rainy Lake and guests at The Mallard during the 1920s. Tyng became deeply involved with Oberholtzer in opposing E. W. Backus' plans for power development in the Rainy Lake watershed. Between 1924 and 1929 there is significant correspondence on the early days of their collaboration. After the founding of the Quetico-Superior Council in 1928 most of their correspondence is found in Oberholtzer's Quetico-Superior papers .
    The letters of Pep Turle, a New York artist with Duluth connections, and Kit Bakeless often recount the summers they spent on Rainy Lake and Oberholtzer's hospitality at The Mallard. In particular they describe the canoe trips Ober planned for them and the "Mallard concerts" with Rosa Oberholtzer and Kit Bakeless playing piano and Ober the violin. The Bakeless correspondence also includes comments on the historical research of John Bakeless, especially his writing on Lewis and Clark.
