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.
