I've been looking for a photo of Myrtle Buckmiller, the namesake of the Eltrym Theater, for a long, long time. I figured she had to be out there somewhere. Today, I spent $29.95 for access to the Seattle Times Archives and found this photo in an article about the theater company she started with her second husband, Donald Geddes. This article was dated January 25th, 1920, eight years before she married Frank Buckmiller, bought the Clarick Theater and moved to Baker City.
