About this Item

Edited by Solon J. Buck. University of Minnesota Press, 1933. Octavo, cloth. 287 pages, illustrated. Just a touch of cover wear, and some internal foxing, but still a very good copy. Autobiography of this noted educator who went to Minnesota scarcely ten years after it became a state. There he planned a state-wide educational system, founded the state geological survey, developed a park system for Minneapolis, founded the Minneapolis Society of Fine Arts, became first president of the University of Minnesota, and upon retiring wrote the monumental four-volume History of Minnesota. There is also valuable material on social and cultural conditions in western New York State and Ohio, and certain aspects of life in the Union Army during the Civil War. Bookseller Inventory # 4695
