Guide to Reading and Study

Theodore C. Blegen

Minnesota History

This valuable syllabus on Minnesota history is designed primarily as an aid to teachers, students, and study clubs. In the first twenty-four pages Dr. Blegen discusses the scope of Minnesota history and summarizes and classifies the historical materials available. The remaining pages begin with the Physical Basis of Minnesota Life and end with Minnesota Literature and Allied Interests. A topical outline, a series of questions and suggestions, and a list of references, are provided for each topic. The references are discriminating rather than exhaustive. The bulk of the material cites is published in Minnesota, but the publications of surrounding states, and even articles in Fortune and News-week are noted.
