Descripción

"For 150 years, transportation has been central to the story of Bloomington. First there were the rivers, ther Minnesota and the mississippi; then there were the dirt roads, and then an isolated airfield. Then came interstate highways, an international airport, and now a nascent mass transit system. But in the end, the Bloomington story is about peopler-the Dakota and the Ojibwa, missionaries and fur traders, soldiers and sodbusters, sandlot athletes and major leaguers, and the veritable flood of suburbanites who settled here in the 1950s and 1960s. God and nature may have carved the land, but it's the handiwork of man that has shaped Bloomington. The city's story could not be told without naming and telling tales of visionaries and builders, then and now. The suburb that became a city has had more than its share of leaders who benefited from what was more than its share of leaders who benefited from what was here and who worked to benefit the community along the way. BLOOMINGTON: A SESQUICENTENNIAL CELEBRATION is a story of community spirit, of sometimes seemingly ordinary people who have put their stamp on Bloomington. They have done so in a way that transcends any story of boats or cars, trains or planes. This, then, is their story." This book has 152 pages and is profusely illustrated.

Sinopsis:

Bloomington: A Sesquicentennial Celebration For 150 years, transportation has been central to the story of Bloomington. First there were the rivers, the Minnesota and the Mississippi; then there were the dirt roads, and then an isolated airfield. Then came interstate highways, an international airport, and now a nascent mass transit system. But in the end, the Bloomington story is about people the Dakota and the Ojibwe, missionaries and fur traders, soldiers and sodbusters, sandlot athletes and major leaguers, and the veritable flood of suburbanites who settled here in the 1950s and 1960s. God and nature may have carved the land, but it s the handiwork of man that has shaped Bloomington. The city s story could not be told without naming names and telling tales of visionaries and builders, then and now. The suburb that became a city has had more than its share of leaders who benefited from what was here and who worked to benefit the community along the way. Bloomington: A Sesquicentennial Celebration is a story of community spirit, of sometimes seemingly ordinary people who have put their stamp on Bloomington. They have done so in a way that transcends any story of boats or cars, trains or planes. This, then, is their story.

About the Author:

John C. Chuck Chalberg is a longtime Bloomington resident. He s also a longtime member of the Normandale Community College faculty, having taught American and Minnesota history there since the Nixon administration. He is the author of a biography of Emma Goldman and a dual biography of Jackie Robinson and Branch Rickey. In his other lives, he performs one-man shows as Rickey, Teddy Roosevelt, golfer Bobby Jones, and writers G. K. Chesterton, H. L. Mencken, and George Orwell. To his knowledge, only Rickey, Jones, and Chesterton would qualify as fellow suburbanites. When he is not pretending to be someone, he is a husband and father of five.
