Interviewing Art

Interviewing Art

Torsten Kjellstrand made this photograph of Art Derouche, 70, explaining a rescue attempt along the Two Medicine River. Art quickly became one of our favorite interview sources — not just for his knowledge and insight into what happened on that day in June, 1964, but also for his warmth and humor. Art was 21 years old in 1964, when he and a friend tied barbed wire to an old tire and threw it into the river to rescue people stranded in a pickup in the floodwaters.
