The Teamsters were backing a college proposal for Worthington in 1960. I believe this eventually became the U of M Morris–is this correct? Edit: Nope, one of our commenters, Sundown, says: I think it was Southwest State in Marshall that beat out Worthington at that time. I know Southwest State started in the early 1960s.
Worthington Junior College (now Minnesota West) offered all kinds of cool classes in 1960.
W.E. Davenport, a college teacher, went missing in 1939. I did search the papers that followed the one in which this sad little tale was printed, but I could not find out what happened to Mr. Davenport. Does anyone know?
In 1960, there were actually people who could afford college. This may seem odd to some of the students today, who, even if they hold full-time jobs and take an extra part-time job over the summer, cannot hope to pay their tuition without loans. And these days even scholarships aren’t enough.
