Minnesota Gubernatorial Oral Histories

Persistent link for this collection

From 2015 to 2017, the University of Minnesota's Center for Integrative Leadership, in partnership with Patrick Coleman of the Minnesota Historical Society, facilitated first-person, substantive oral histories of Minnesota gubernatorial administrations. Interviews were researched and conducted by an interdisciplinary group of University of Minnesota graduate students. Interviewees included Governor Tim Pawlenty (served 2003-2011), Governor Jesse Ventura (1999-2003), Governor Arne Carlson (1991-1999), and Lieutenant Governor Marlene Johnson (1983-1991). Additionally, this collection includes an oral history of Reatha Clark King, a former university president and business leader active in Minnesota from 1977-2003.
