Biographical NoteReturn to Top

Rudo Lorenzo Fromme (1882-1973) worked for the National Forest Service in Washington, Oregon and Idaho, for 37 years. He was a Forest Service Superintendent in the Olympic National Forest from 1911-1926. Fromme was born July 10, 1882, in Saint Paris, Ohio, to Frank W. and Stella L. (neé Riker) Fromme. He attended Purdue University and Ohio State University. He earned a Master's Degree from the Yale School of Forestry in 1906 and married Ruby Ellen Gowanlock on May 20, 1908. Fromme worked in forestry in Idaho, California, Oregon, and Washington, with the majority of his career in the Olympic National Forest, Washington. In 1932 Fromme married Eleanor Louise Banks and the couple lived in Maple Valley, Washington. Supervisor Fromme retired from the Forest Service in 1943 and embarked on a new career, doing make-up for stage performances in Pomona, Claremont, and LaVerne, California, until his second retirement in 1965. Fromme died in a nursing home on August 19, 1973 and is buried in Mountain Crest Memorial Park in Enumclaw, Washington. Mount Fromme, near Mount Claywood and Mount Sentinel, was named in 1920 by a mountaineering party for Superintendent Fromme.

Body of John Tornow
Caption on page: Torneau, the Olympic Outlaw, 1915.Note: John Torneau (sometimes spelled Turnow in news articles) (1880-1913), the Wild Man of the Wynoochee, shunned society and lived off the land in the woods of the Olympic Peninsula. In 1911, he was accused of shooting and killing his teenage nephews, although there has been speculation about the circumstances surrounding their deaths. This spurred a two-year manhunt, during which time Tornow killed four men who had been hunting him. Tornow was shot by Giles Quimby, a sheriff's deputy, on April 16, 1913. Fromme wrote 1915 in his album, which does not match the time line of Tornow's life. The photo in Fromme's album may be a postcard of Tornow's body, which was popular during the early 20th century. A September 17, 1972 Seattle Times article notes that Fromme was "involved" in Tornow's shooting but information about this involvement has not been located.

Rudo Fromme Glass Lantern Slides, circa 1900-1940Return to Top

These are also known as "Magic Lantern" slides. A photographic lantern slide is a positive print of a photograph on a glass slide. These were “matted” by a piece of opaque paper laid on the slide. Then a second slide of glass was laid atop the glass slide with the positive print and these two pieces of glass were bound firmly together by pasting a strip of paper around the edges. The final slides were shown in a lantern slide projector. By the 1930s and 40s, lantern slides dropped off in use as overhead projectors and slide projectors took their place.

Fromme presented public lectures using these glass-lantern slides. Every slide was photographed by Rudo L. Fromme unless noted otherwise.
