Superior wartime wedding attracts worldwide attention
Welcome to the first episode of Archive Dive by the Superior Telegram.

Each month, host and Telegram reporter Maria Lockwood dips into the archives of historic events, people and places in Superior and Douglas County with local historians.   

In our first episode, we look back at a Superior wedding that transfixed the nation. The Feb. 10, 1945 marriage of America’s Ace of Aces Maj. Richard I. Bong and his sweetheart Marge Vattendahl. 

Local historian and retired librarian Teddie Meronek guides us through how the couple met, how many eggs it took to make their 700-pound wedding cake and the tragedy that ended their marriage just 6 months after they said their vows.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
