Shattuck, S. F., et. al (ed.) / A history of Neenah
Foreword, pp. v-vi PDF (481.1 KB)
A HISTORY OF NEENAH over the horizon, it may well be that some more competent historians will desire to add to, or re-do these pages. To this end we suggest that all comments and criticisms be passed to an officer of the Neenah Historical Society. You will note that this volume is in two parts. Part I takes a bird's eye view of the Cunningham era, evaluates the significance of the Fox waterway in the development of this area, and brings into view the many products of science, research and invention that have so profoundly altered the lives of our people, particularly since the turn of the century. Part I then continues as a story, by decades, recording, in condensed form, the growth of Neenah from its crude beginnings to the robust and cultured community of 1958. In Part II will be found a major portion of the source material that came in from interested citizens throughout the length and breadth of our Twin Cities. Through use of the Table of Contents, reference may be made to specific subjects, as one scans the decade material and desires fuller information. S. F. SHATTUCK, Chairman MRS.
