A Harstad by any other name...might be the wrong Harstad

Tjodgjei Harstad and his family The Scene editorial staff has learned something important about running captions with old photos: be sure to check with any living relatives of the people pictured before matching a name with a face.
     Isabel (Harstad '46) Watness politely informed us that the photo we ran of Mr. and Mrs. [Bjug] Harstad and daughter in the Fall 1998 issue was actually Tjodgjei Harstad (Bjug's older brother by five years) and his family.
     "I saw those two canes and thought, 'Alaska must have been really hard on Grandpa,'" laughed Watness, who realized our mistake and called us soon after. Thanks Isabel, and thanks also to the other members of the Harstad family who contacted us.
