The Minnesota Digital Library is pleased to announce the inclusion of a new contributing partner to Minnesota Reflections. The Norwegian-American Historical Association joins MDL as our 195th partner organization! The Historical Association shares photographs of Norwegians in Minnesota as well as images and a sourvenir booklet of the Norse-American Centennial parade that was held in New York City in 1925.
The Norwegian-American Historical Association (NAHA), a national center for the collection and preservation of historical material relating to Norwegian-American life, manages North America’s largest archival collection of Norwegian-American materials. Every state and province is represented, with particular strength in the Midwest, where the highest percentage of Norwegians settled. NAHA contributed to Minnesota Reflection images from the Norse-American Centennial papers and Carl O. Pedersen papers that document the 100 year anniversary of Norwegian Immigration to the United States.
