I recently purchased the subject undated studio portrait of a teenage girl that is signed across the front:

"Wanda Palmquist"

This individual is listed in the 1920 Census data for Vinland Precinct, Fresno Co., CA; and the 1930 Census data for Township 11, Fresno Co., CA. Born 30 Apr 1919 in Madera Co., CA, died 23 Jul 2010 in Sacramento Co., CA, she was the daughter of a fruit farmer, Victor Ferdinand Palmquist, born 20 Mar 1892 in MN, and Flora Lucile Van Hoosen, born 25 May 1893 in IA, died 10 Jun 1966 in Fresno Co., CA. Wanda's siblings are Lester E. Palmquist, born 28 Nov 1913 in Fresno Co., CA, died 3 Jan 1993 in San Joaquin Co., CA; Donald Palmquist, born 28 Apr 1915 in Fresno Co., CA; and Roger Palmquist, born 6 Aug 1924 in Madera Co., CA, died 27 Jun 2010.

According to an online obituary published in the Sacramento Bee, in about 1943, Wanda married Wynton Cochran. Wanda and Wynton had two children: William "Bill" Cochran and Eloise "Elli" Cochran. Wanda retired as a professor from CSU Sacramento.
