The Minnesota Historical Society’s Local History Services helps Minnesotans preserve and share their history. This blog is a resource of best practices on the wide variety of museum, preservation, conservation, funding, and non-profit management topics. We’re here to help.
Researcher/Writer For Community History Publication
The Richfield Historical Society is seeking a local author to write a history of our community. Richfield is located in Minnesota in the twin cities metropolitan area. The community will be celebrating the centennial of its becoming a village in 2008. (The community has been around for longer in the form of a township.)
The book committee would like an author who has experience in researching, writing and managing a project of this scope. We are working toward having the book ready for sale in October of 2007 leading up to the holidays before 2008. We are looking for recommendations of people who have worked with an author in this region on this type of a project. We would also be interested in any recommendations of local history books or projects that you have enjoyed.
