Bouse Family Photo Collection

     Photos in the Bouse Collection. Dedication to "Mickey Bouse"

     Photos by C. J. Bouse, Leo "Mick" Bouse, S. W. Northurp and possibly an unknown photographer.

     Leo Bouse was a professional photographer after he returned from the Service in the early 1950's. In the early 1960's he chose to close his store on main street, and purchased the S.W. Northurp home. Here he set up his photo lab and continued to take photos and develop as a hobby.

     Leo's father was a professional photographer who worked from his home until he died in 1934. C. J. Bouse took most of the photos found in the 1910 plat book. C. J. and Bessie both worked for the Rothenberger Studio before they were married.

     After they were married, they developed photos at home in the kitchen. They would darken the room, replace the light bulb with the special bulb and let the children watch the mysterious process of development. The kitchen table was also the work space to work on the local moonshiners stills, after shop hours.

      Bessie helped C. J. sell most of the photos for the Plat book. The family has a letter to C. J. telling him she had collected all but $100.00 due from the project. Bessie had a number of photo plates, from C. J.'s work that she gave to Leo when he became a photographer.

     When Leo moved into the Northurp home, he found a set of negatives and developed them. At the time Mr. Northurps son Stanley of Woodward was unable to tell Leo who exactly took many of the photos. They do appear to be different techniques.

     Over the next 35 years or so, Leo worked dilligently with "ol timers" and families to get the photos identified the best he could. Almost every year, someone viewing the collection would give a possible lead to another ID.

     Leo freely gave copies he could made from his stock pile of supplies to those who asked. Many of the photos are found in the 1910 Plat book photo section. Others you will find in A Pioneer History of Shattuck Oklahoma book as well as the two Volumns of the Ellis County Heritage.

     Leo had considered making a "Coffee Table" book of photos from this collection. He had considered donating the collection to the OU Museum Photo Collection. Leo died in 2000, leaving the decision of dispersal to his daughter Peggy.

    Peggy has graciously requested that we continue to share these wonderful pages of history with the world by placing them online. Hopefully, we may add many more photos that Leo took in the future.

     The Bouse family will be controling the copyrights by requesting that you contact Linda Fox directly for copies.

We thank you and hope you enjoy "Uncle Mick's hometown of SHATTUCK"

Linda Fox

PS: Fact: C. J. Bouse worked at the light plant before opening his own "Tin" shop next to the Railroad Track on 1st and Main (now Grand and Main).

Fact: C. J. Bouse was good personal friends with the Railroad engineers. They all had a special "Toot" they would give, so C. J. aka "Bill" to his friends, would know who was arriving. He would then put down his work and go meet the train.

Fact: C. J. Bouse made stills at home on the kitchen table, when he was not developing camera plates.

Fact: C. J. Bouse was a good friend of O. E. Enfield. Bessie had pin of the Socialist Party that O. E. gave as a memento, although C. J. refused to have any part of the political activities of his friend.

     Requests for information about the BOUSE Collection, or how to obtain copies etc can be made to:
, niece of Leo Bouse, representative for
Peggy Bouse Allen, owner of negatives and collection #'s 89-243.
The entire Bouse collection may later contain photo's from C. J & Bessie Bouse collection as well as other photos of general interest.

     A donation will be asked of interested parties to cover the cost of reproduction, CD or what ever format you request. If donation is made in a larger amount, it will go against the expense of maintaining the web site,, that hosts the photos.

     Webmaster has no other information pertaining to these photos and will not be paid any fee by the Bouse family for presenting them online.
