The Minnesota Historical Society preserves and makes available a wide range of materials chronicling Minnesota's history and culture. The goals of the Collections Department are to collect and preserve; provide access and interpretation; and engage in education and outreach. This blog is a tool to share these stories and let people know what is happening in the department.
After the long winter and short spring, this watercolor by Clara Mairs shows what we all deserve now.
It shows a man on an outdoor lounge, reading the paper. It was created in 1935.
