Narrative of the life of Maurice Farrar, an English promotion agent

Description

Maurice Farrar was an Englishman authorized in 1880 by the state of Minnesota to act as a promotion agent. He spent five years in Minnesota during the late 1870s and, upon returning to Great Britain, published a promotional work extolling the farming life in the Midwest. This database is a transcription of that work. He describes the farming center of Fairmont, in Martin County, the wooded area of Fillmore County, and the town of Chatfield. Additionally, he provides a description of his visit to a Chippewa reservation, White Earth. For those researchers trying to understand the larger culture in which Minnesota ancestors may have lived, this can be a helpful database.
