Admin/Biographical History
Daniel Bursk Strickler
Personal Life:
Daniel Bursk Strickler was born on 17 May 1897 in Columbia, Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. His parents, Calvin Ruby Strickler and Harriet Bursk Strickler, raised him in Columbia. Strickler married Caroline Grace Bolton on 11 October 1924. Daniel and Caroline Strickler had two children, Nancy Cupper Strickler and Daniel Bursk Strickler, Jr. Daniel Bursk Strickler, Sr. died on 21 June 1992.
Military Career:
Daniel Strickler enlisted in the 4th Pennsylvania Infantry of the Army National Guard under the command of General Edward C. Shannon as a private on 31 January 1916. By April, Strickler was promoted to corporal and in July was assigned to the Mexican Border Conflict as a sergeant. He soon showed his value as a soldier and leader, and in April of 1917 was elected second lieutenant of Company C of the 4th Pennsylvania Infantry of the Army National Guard.
In September, Strickler was promoted once again to first lieutenant, at the same time that Company C became Company B of the 109th Machine Gun Battalion of the 28th Infantry Division of the United States Army. His company was deployed to France in September 1917 during World War I. Strickler served in five French campaigns including the Battle of Argonne Forest, which was when he received his Purple Heart. He obtained several commissions over the next eleven years including captain in 1918, major in 1922 and lieutenant colonel in 1928.
Just seven years after being promoted to colonel, Strickler was sent to France for a second time. He was in command of the 28th Division, Infantry Regiment during World War II. In 1942, he started command with the 109th Unit and then the 110th Unit of the 28th Division. In June of 1944, Strickler and his men landed at Omaha Beach. Strickler commanded troops during the Battle of the Bulge in the following December. He returned to the United States after three years of fighting.
Strickler was presented the honor of brigadier general in March of 1946 and on 24 December 1947, he was promoted to major general. Strickler remained in the Army and served in the Korean War from 1950 to 1953. Afterwards, he served as an advisor for the Army as a diplomat to Korea until his retirement in 1957. Strickler's final commission occurred on 8 February 1960 to lieutenant general. He had been honored many times and received military decorations for valor, heroism, and dedication including three stars.
Education:
Daniel Strickler attended Columbia area public schools until he graduated from Columbia High School in 1916. He was the captain of the track team, president of the junior and senior class, and a member of the baseball and basketball teams. Upon his return from World War I in 1918, Strickler enrolled at Cornell University Law School in Ithaca, New York. He took on many more responsibilities at this stage of his life. Not only did he receive his Bachelor of Laws (LLB) degree in 1922, but he was also a member of various organizations, clubs and teams during his three years at Cornell University. He was captain of the track team and a member of the Senior Honor Society. Strickler was also president of the following organizations: Senior Class, Student Council, Quill and Dagger Society and Alpha Kappa Chapter of the Kappa Sigma Fraternity.
Professional Career:
Daniel Strickler was admitted to the Bar of several courts during the 1920s including Supreme Court of Pennsylvania; Courts of Lancaster County, Pennsylvania; Superior Court of Pennsylvania; United States District Court; and United States Supreme Court. He worked with several law firms after obtaining his degree and in 1930, between the births of his two children, he established his own law firm in Lancaster. His legal career was not much different from his military or educational careers. He was involved with various professional organizations such as Pennsylvania Bar Association, Lancaster Bar Association, The American Bar Association, the Blackstonian Club of Lancaster, and the Republican Club. Strickler served as Auditor for Lancaster County from 1927 to 1929 and on a Special Counsel for the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania from 1928 to 1930. In 1931, Strickler was elected to the Pennsylvania Legislature to serve in the House of Representatives, thus jump-starting his political career.
Political Career:
The political career of Daniel Strickler brought him several new titles including auditor, special counsel member, representative, commissioner, solicitor, committeeman, delegate and lieutenant governor. He served as a member of the Pennsylvania House of Representatives during 1931 and 1932, General and Special Sessions. In 1931, Strickler served as the delegate for Pennsylvania at the National Young Republican Conference in Washington, DC. He was the temporary president of the Young Republican State Committee (YRSC) during 1931 as well. After his temporary appointment, he became an executive committee member of YRSC until 1936 and was also appointed as treasurer from 1934 until 1936.
From April to December of 1932, Strickler became the commissioner of the police department of Lancaster City as a special temporary appointment. During this time, he was in charge of cleaning up the police department and taking a stand against corruption and crime. He was a strong prohibitionist and cleaned up the city. Upon selection, he became the solicitor for Lancaster County, the York-Lancaster Inter-County Bridge Commission, and the Lancaster Municipal Airport from 1933 to 1941. He also served as the Republican County Committeeman for the 1st Precinct, 6th Ward, in Lancaster City until 1941. In 1946, Strickler was elected lieutenant governor of Pennsylvania, which he fulfilled from 1947 until 1950 when he resigned to serve in the Korean War.

Summary
Historic Lancaster Pennsylvania and the Restoration of Its Downtown: Mary K. Kreider Scrapbooks is a collection of six scrapbooks of newspaper clippings depicting the restoration of historic sites and businesses located in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. With the help of non-profit organizations and government aid, the Lancaster community was able to begin a beautification project of architectural structures throughout the county. Each volume contains information about the preservation of different sites.
Book 1 shows the beginning of the project and the layout of the historical markers to be placed throughout the county. It shows Lancaster's downtown walking tour, as well as the locations of several businesses and historic sites located in the city. Some of the places cited are Central Market, Landis Valley Museum, Strasburg Railroad, Hager's Store, Lancaster County Court House, Wright Mansion, Hotel Brunswick, M. T. Garvin's Department Store, Lancaster General Hospital and Cabbage Hill.
Book 2 mentions a variety of new places including Franklin and Marshall College, Hans Herr House, Wheatland, F. W. Woolworth's Department Store, Swan Hotel and historic homes. This book displays articles about Lancaster's Annual Summer Arts Festivals that occurred between 1975 and 1978. Kreider placed the published results of a United States Historic Register survey in this scrapbook.
Book 3 was compiled by Kreider from April to November 1979. Although book three does have some articles about restoration, the majority of it contains articles about new buildings and public issues that were facing the community. The historical restoration portion covers the Ephrata Cloister, Hamilton Watch Company and Swan Hotel. The new building development occurred throughout the county and included new housing and luxury condominiums. Some of the major issues that were focused on were gas rationing, development of the city, and standardizing education.
Book 4 returns to focusing on historic Lancaster and the need for building restorations. Like books one and two, this scrapbook contains articles about Lancaster Heritage Center, Cabbage Hill, Central Market, Hotel Brunswick, Hager's Store, Hans Herr House and Lancaster General Hospital. However, it also introduces new projects that include Millersville State College (Millersville University of Pennsylvania), Lancaster Paint and Glass Company, Thaddeus Stevens' house, Young Men's Christian Association (YMCA), Ellicott house, White Chimneys (also known as the Slaymaker Mansion) and covered bridges throughout the county. Kreider also collected articles written about the new Horse Mounted Patrol Unit of the Lancaster City Police Department.
In Book 5, Kreider compiled articles about Lancaster City, Mount Joy and Strasburg. Cameron Estate Inn and Restaurant, located in Mount Joy, was part of the restoration project to aid the tourist industry. Lancaster City restoration projects included Rossmere Sanatorium, Lancaster General Hospital, Williamson's Department Store, Lancaster County Prison, Lancaster Newspapers Inc., Hamilton Technology School, Bowman Technical School, and the Demuth Home and Museum. The Strasburg Railroad and Railroad Museum were also being updated during this period. Articles about the dedication of Steinman Park, American Bank and Trust Company, National Trust for Historical Preservation and the Heritage Center of Lancaster were collected and secured into the scrapbook.
Book 6 is a conglomeration of articles that concludes the restoration books. Although some new projects are being introduced, Kreider displays clippings that show the final outcome of the restoration projects. The new projects were Rock Ford Plantation and Germantown. Prominent Lancastrians are also mentioned including John Ward Willson Loose, Lloyd Mifflin, J. P. McCaskey and Charles Demuth. The Junior League of Lancaster and Hamilton Club are two organizations that are mentioned throughout book six. The projects that were completed include Penn Square, Bowman Technical School, Lancaster County Courthouse, Hamilton Apartments, Strasburg Railroad, Franklin and Marshall College, Central Market and Hans Herr House. Overall, the six scrapbooks show the restoration of Lancaster and the development towards the tourist industry.
