Home Town Memories of Grinnell, Iowa

Xlibris Corporation, 2012 - Biography & Autobiography - 218 pages
I attended my 55th high school reunion in July of 2012 and was inspired to write "Home Town Memories of Grinnell, Iowa." This work is not intended to be an all inclusive, comprehensive, scholarly history with a preoccupation for exact dates, etc. It is simply a personal history, my recollections of the old home town during a limited period in the town's history the 40's, 50's and 60's. I have written in my own way using a flow of words that came to me as I wrote. In a town of 8,000 9,000, as Grinnell was in those days - you eventually get to know and have some contact along the way with most people. My intent was to communicate in simple, straight forward terms and was not concerned about presenting it as "a triumph in English language grammar."
