It was not just leaders like Benjamin Franklin, George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, Franklin Roosevelt, and Martin Luther King who shaped the country. It was not just state leaders like Alexander Ramsey, Floyd B. Olson, and Hubert Humphrey who shaped the state of Minnesota. It was also the cumulative efforts of the many so-called "average citizens."
Voices From Minnesota is a collection of thirty-two short biographies of Minnesota senior citizens as varied and unpredictable as life itself. From potato farmers, candy makers, world-class horseshoe throwers, pigeon racers, furriers and roller derby professionals to bankers, executives, professors and civil rights leaders, these men and woman were shaped by unique times—WWI, the stock market crash of 1929, the Great Depression, Prohibition, WWII, segregation, and technology advances from the horse and buggy to space travel. They are representative of the people that make Minnesota what it is today.About the Author:
