Minnesota Historical Journalism

Curt Brown's new book, "Minnesota 1918," details the trident of woe that pierced the state 100 years ago - when forest fires, World War I, and the flu pandemic ravaged the state. He writes a popular Minnesota history column every Sunday for the Minneapolis Star Tribune. Those stories have been packaged into an e-book called: "Frozen in History: Amazing Tales from Minnesota's Past." He spent more than 30 years as a reporter at Minnesota newspapers in Minneapolis, St. Paul, and Fergus Falls. After studying history and American Studies at Macalester College, he joined the Associated Press in 1982.
