The Rockford Area Historical Society will present a lecture series discussing the letters and diaries left by members of the Stork family while they lived in St. Paul. The series will continue on March 9, April 13, May 11, each at 10 a.m. at the Lion's Building in Rockford. The sessions will progress through American involvement in the War and place the Stork’s experience in a national and global context, climaxing with Clinton Stork’s announcement of “PEACE!” on November 11, 1918. The family was heavily involved in social groups that entertained soldiers at Fort Snelling; volunteered for the Red Cross and Temperance movement; and dealt with the flu pandemic, as well as the death of their mother and wife, Grace.
Funding for the research for these presentations is provided by a grant from the Legacy Amendment’s Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund, which supports efforts to preserve Minnesota’s land, water and legacy, including state history and cultural heritage.
