May 28, 1959: "A Conservation Commission forest towerman, Clifford D. Eudy, apparently was killed instantly in a two vehicle crash one-half mile west of Montier on Highway 60, May 20. Witnesses reported Eudy, driving a 1955 Chevrolet pickup, attempted to pass another pickup and saw a semi-trailer truck approaching. He swung back into the line of traffic, they said, but appeared to lose control of the vehicle and it swerved into the path of the oncoming truck. The large truck overturned but the driver apparently escaped injury. The pickup Eudy was driving was demolished. Eudy, 33, manned a forest lookout tower near Mountain View, Mo., where he and his family lived. He has been a towerman with the Commission since 1951." (Gasconade County Republican)
