Bill is one of the erudite and interesting young men in the Culver community. Born and reared in Indianapolis, he has been spending his summers on Lake Maxinkuckee since he was a boy two years of age.

He became a permanen resident of Culver in 1954 and lives at 2638 East Shore Lane, along side a summer home hismaternal grandfather, W. J. Wood, built in 1894.

Mrs. Rasmussen was a graduate from Wabash College with the class of 1938 where he joined Govenor Handley's and Senator Jenner's Delta Tau Delta Fraternity. For some unknow reason, Bill tries to keep secret that he also made Phi Beta Kappa,,, honaorary scholastic society, at this all-male schoo where many of the students are playboys instead of scholars.

Since graduating with honors at Wabash, Bill has been emplyed by the Indianapolis firs of Insley Manufacturing Company producers of road building machinery, and with the E. C. Atkins Saw Company, now owned by Borg-Warner. For a while he operated his own business devoted to sales of imported motorcycles and foreign cars. Bill developed this latter interest when he spent four months in Europe in 1951

Bills Rasmussen's hobbies are pipe organs and photography. He is presently installing a new organ in his home, piece by piece, and often works far into the night. He is such an expert in organ construction and operation that Shemberger's Music Store in Plymouth often refers knottu problems to him.... 13 Feb 1957 - Citizen
