Minnesota: 'Land of Plenty' (1942)
APPROVED · 10min · Short, Documentary · 31 January 1942
This Traveltalk visit to Minnesota starts in Winona, Minnesota and follows the course of the Mississippi River north to its source in Itasca. In between we visit several cities along the way. Some of the stops are: Rochester, home of the Mayo Clinic; St. Paul, the capital, where narrator FitzPatrick shakes hands with Governor Harold E. Stassen; Hibbing, site of the world's largest open pit iron mine; Duluth, then the world's largest inland water port; and Bemidji, with larger-than-life statues of folk hero Paul Bunyan and his ox, Babe.
