    Vigilantism against African Americans in SW Minnesota, 1903
    by Christopher P. Lehman

    A crime, a “negro hunt,” and the swift capture of the suspect made headlines statewide. Minnesotans congratulated themselves for not lynching the captive, but they ignored—or endorsed—the ensuing threats against their African American neighbors.

    A Tale of Two Women: The Wildflower Portfolio
    by Sue Leaf
    With sketchbooks and pens, collecting baskets and keen eyes, two young women half-a-continent apart took to the fields to capture nature’s ephemeral beauty. Their lives and art intertwined over the years, leaving us an enduring legacy in watercolor.

    Brown & Bigelow’s Charles Allen Ward
    by Shelby Edwards

    Consummate businessman, philanthropist, and former jailbird, “Uncle Charlie” was, by all accounts, a generous man with a history of tempestuous working relationships--traits well illustrated in a recent addition to the Minnesota Historical Society’s collections.
