This is a state of Minnesota map prepared by Stafford King, State Auditor, St. Paul, Minnesota. The map shows state parks (22) and Monuments (8) as well as state forests. We assume that Oberholtzer has hand-colored the Superior National Forest with green crayon including a portion south to nearly Beaver Bay and portions near Vermillion Lake and including State Forests and Burntside Forests. A hand-drawn orange boundary line is undefined. On the reverse side of the map we find MN town and city population figures from 1930 census reports. Minneapolis = 464,356 and Rochester, MN = 20,621.
Using a 1928 highway map of Minnesota, Ernest Oberholtzer mapped the Superior National Forest and the impact of the proposed Shipstead Newton (Nolan) Bill (1930) as well as an amendment called "Hastings Amendment." Ober's notes are in colored pencil: (red) Area to which provisions of bill would apply if Hastings Amendment were adopted. And (blue) Area in which federal lands are withdrawn under Shipstead Newton Bill. Oberholtzer's handwriting. He also noted "Present Area of SNF shown in yellow" outline. Map is in fair condition.
Duluth's longest-serving mayor, Samuel Frisby Snively, was born on November 24, 1859 in Cumberland, Pennsylvania. After earning a law degree from the University of Pennsylvania, he and a friend opened a law firm in Duluth in 1886. They did very well until the financial ruin of 1893, after which Snively tried his luck in the Yukon gold rush of 1897. He was unsuccessful, but he returned to Duluth and found prosperity in farmland development. After building a creek parkway (Seven Bridges Road) and several others, Snively was elected mayor in 1921 at the age of 61. He held the office for sixteen years, leaving a legacy of beautiful parkland and boulevards. He continued this work after his four terms until he died a bachelor on November 7, 1952 in Duluth.
Charles Hinman Graves was a colonel in the army before his term as mayor in 1882-1883. He went on to serve in the Minnesota Legislature before his death in 1928. Marcus B. Cullum, born in 1856, served as Duluth's mayor from 1904-1907 and again from 1910-1911. He began work on what is now Leif Erikson Park, and was later a strong figure in the Minnesota Legislature before he died in 1932. Clinton Markell was Duluth's second mayor, elected in 1870. After his tenure he continued in the grain and mining businesses until his death in 1912.
This building once housed exhibits of the human and natural drama of the Superior National Forest and the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness. Later, after the United States Forest Service moved to other quarters, the building became the International Wolf Center.
This building looks exactly the same today as it did when built back in the 1930s. On the interior there are murals of miners and wildlife painted during the Great Depression through the New Deal art projects by Minnesota artist Elsa Jemne.
