Former President - Red River Valley Winter Shows
75 Years of the Red River Valley Winter Shows (PDF) was published as a part of the 75th anniversary celebration at the Winter Show. It is more than chronological recording of dates and events. The author tries to capture the dreams, efforts, successes, and failures of people on the land of northwestern Minnesota, and to incorporate the history of the institutions that developed to serve agriculture. Much has changed from first Winter Shows in 1910 to the 75th anniversary show in 1985.
The author gathered information from a wide range of sources including communications via letter, telephone, personal interviews, volumes of premium books, program booklets and other publications dating back to 1910.
