A traveler with a miraculous story visited the Bandon Historical Society Museum today August 20, Christensen, the neighbor who found him after the flood, took the three-month-old back to his house and gave him a tablespoon of whiskey.
The Howells came to the museum to see if the Bandon Historical Society had a better copy of the article he shared and had any further information on the flood. Richard Howell, who had been given up as dead, was found alive by searchers following the storm of Sunday night. Christensen farm.
Above them was a dirt dam some 20 feet in height, the water of which had been used for irrigation purposes on the Christensen farm. The sudden onrush of water swept the Howell home from its foundation and carried it down the canyon some yards to the main road. The walls had collapsed and the roof had fallen in. The mother quickly gathered the baby in her arms, but in the topsy-turvy trip down the canyon, half submerged in icy water, she lost him. When the wreckage came to a halt at the main road, there were father and mother and the two older children, but the baby was gone.
Madly, they searched in the pitch darkness, falling and calling, searching every inch of mud soaked ground on their hands and knees. Frantically they jerked at branches of trees and wreckage of lumber and shingles, but all to no avail. Finally giving up in despair, firm in the belief that their baby was dead, the motley four, water-soaked and numb with cold made their way to the Christensen home.
Aided by a flashlight and lantern, Christensen and Ray rushed to the scene of the wreckage to find the body of Baby Howell. Doubt was in the minds that they would even be able to locate the body of the child, when suddenly after upturning what had been part of the roof of the modest abode they saw Baby Howell.

His left arm and his head were firmly hooked over the limb of an alder sapling that had been washed from its moorings by the rushing torrent, and he was alive, breathing; in fact gurgling as they gently lifted him from his anchorage to the arms of rescue. At top speed the men rushed the baby to its parents, where after superficial examination he was found apparently little the worse for his experience. He was brought to Bandon and given a thorough examination by Dr.
Lucas, who found no water in the lungs and only a slight fever as the result of exposure. Thank you Richard and Sandy for visiting the museum and sharing this wonderful story! A house with ties to the aftermath of the fire was demolished today August 1, The small house was set at the back of a lot in the block of Division Street.

The October 8 paper reported work was under way. The paper also reported the first nine-family unit was almost complete. The WPA units were intended to be bare-bones, temporary housing structures. In time, they were torn down or moved to reduce them to one dwelling per lot. The Bandon exhibit covered about square feet of wall space and a display cabinet about eight feet long. Museum volunteers constructed 18 thirty-by-twenty inch cloth covered foam board panels and six half-sheet panels. Photos were mounted on the larger panels and the small panels bore text. The display case was filled with beach related objects.
The work of preparing the panels was shared by a wide ranging group. Student employee Katie Brown put the finishing touches on the text panels.
