WCCO-TV Goes Behind the Scenes at MHS

By: admin | What's New | January 10, 2008
WCCO-TV reporter Jeanette Trompeter recently peeked behind the scenes of the Minnesota Historical Society's History Center. Trompeter interviewed curators Linda McShannock and Matt Anderson about interesting pieces from the Society's collection, including a handgun used to wound John Dillinger, a duster worn by a James-Younger Gang member during the Northfield Raid, and pieces of Munsingwear underwear.
