Those of you who are interested in Iowa’s history should check out Sarah’s Notebook, a blog by an Iowa City librarian that frequently includes items that will be of interest to you. Here are three recent posts you might like:

  • Tabor, Iowa and the UGRR…the Underground Railroad (UGRR) is one of the least understood stories in Iowa history…
  • Norman Borlaug, Food Hero…In the middle of the 20th century, experts predicted famine and starvation, but they turned out to be wrong – because they did not predict Norman Borlaug…
  • Alexander G. Clark “Alexander G. Clark is an important figure in both Iowa and American history. He was an African-American who helped lead the fight to grant African-Americans the right to vote in Iowa in 1868 (first state outside of New England to do so) and also fought for school desegregation decades before the Brown decision…”

And here is the link to the main page for Sarah’s Notebook.
