Mystery Photo #34: UMD Majorette June Feick

June Feick UMD Majorette

This mystery photo comes from the folks at UMD’s Kathryn A. Martin Library. The majorette featured front and center is June Feick, leading her fellow majorettes and the UMD Marching Band during the 1952 Homecoming Parade on Superior Street in Duluth.

The mystery? “June doesn’t appear to have enrolled at UMD for the 1953-54 (school year),” reads the caption on the Kathryn A. Martin Library Facebook page. “We are curious about what happened in her life after she left UMD. Can anyone help us find more information?”

Presuming it's the same person, you find a June Feick living with her parents in Morgan Park in 1954 (City directory), working as a factory worker at Western Electric. (Her dad works at American Steel and Wire as a pourer.) She was born in Neche, ND in 1934.

I believe she married a Duluthian named Stuart I MacKie, who was a student at Northwestern around that same time. (I can find no marriage record, however.) They eventually had four children, and lived in various northern Chicago suburbs in the 1970s. She died September 5, 1998. 

More details and careful fact-checking would require more time than I have this morning.

Thank you for the update and additional details about Ms. Feick! On behalf of the library staff at UMD, we are so thrilled that we can put a name to the face finally. The photo is a favorite here at the library and in the UMD Archives.
