Rike's - Rike's was a major client of Rollyn's. They published a monthly newsletter which he provided the photo content of each edition.

1950 Snow Storm - The snow storm that hit Dayton, Ohio in 1950 became a generational event for Rollyn and his wife as the city was virtually shut down. Out of state family members were stranded in their home for several days.
