Clues in Old Photos - Lawrenson, Thorpe, Lesteberg

Surnames: Lawrenson, Lesteberg
I'm new to geneology and rely on family photo albums for many clues. From what I've gathered in researching some of the names, my grandfather, Ole O. Rindahl, was interested in politics and the church. He saved a letter received from Andrew Volstead (introducing his candidacy for Congress), and one from PA Gandrud in the MN State House regarding a bill that was defeated - "Stone" bill or "store" bill? 1903. Little clues about others I've researched suggest Ole was very interested in the Temperence movement. Others, I have no idea. "Mrs. Lawrenson"? "Carolyn Lesteberg"? Another young woman, ca. 1900 or so, taken at a studio in Springfield, Ohio (a seminary connection?) If these names are familiar, I would like to hear about them. I would also like to hear if anyone has letters or other information that relate to the Temperence movement, Willmar Seminary and Norway Lake, or the churches in Norway Lake. Thank you.
