Descripción

"Before we embark on this unique and exciting story about the life of Southwest State University, it is important to first review the history, including the cultural and economic background of the Marshall community in the pre-college era. The first meeting about a college took place in Marshall in 1956, so that's when our story will begin. In 1956 the population of Marshall was about 5,9000 with a trade area population of about 45,000. In the 1950's and 60's Marshall was a typical small Midwestern farm community made up of predominately white, conservative {not necessarily politically speaking}, thinking people, and a community rooted in strong Protestant-Catholic churchgoing cultural values. This was 'An American Gothic Grant Wood' type of community. Almost all the people in the community knew one another. Families fraternized with one another, and many marriages occurred between the families. The community was basically one big neighborhood. Everyone pursued similar goals: own a home, raise and educate their children, strive for a middle class way of life, and eventually end up with a reasonably comfortable retirement. Economically the community had an interdependency on one another, exchanging goods, services and labors." This book has 203 pages and is illustrated throughout. Overall, a FINE copy with VERY GOOD dustjacket of this SCARCE title. N° de ref. de la librería 057945
