Minnesota Goes To War
Join us at the Carlton County Historical Society on Friday, Oct 8 at 2 PM for a presentation by Dave Kenney on Minnesota Goes to War. Kenney will be talking about life on the Minnesota home front during World War II, with special emphasis on shipbuilding operations in Duluth/ Superior and the important role played by the Iron Range. Dave Kenney is a freelance writer specializing in Minnesota history. After earning degrees from St. Olaf College and the University of Missouri-Columbia, he established a career in television news-first as a reporter in Asheville, North Carolina and Norfolk, Virginia, and then as a senior writer for CNN in Atlanta. The program is being co-sponsored by the Cloquet Public Library and Carlton County Historical Society in conjunction with Minnesota’s Greatest Generation programs presented by Minnesota Regional Public Libraries in partnership with the Minnesota Historical Society. Programs are made possible by the Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund created through the passage of the Clean Water, Land and Legacy Amendment by the vote of Minnesotans in November 2008.
