Biographical / Historical

The American Historical Association was founded in 1884 for the "promotion of American History and history in America". In 1926 it sought to raise a one million dollar endowment fund for historical research. Minnesota was charged to contribute $20,000. Solon J. Buck, executive secretary of the Minnesota Committee, enlisted William E. Culkin of Duluth in this effort.
