Minnesota Historical Society
The Forest History Oral History Project is a group of interviews conducted and compiled by John Esse on the history of northern Minnesota. These interviews capture the lives of men and women who homesteaded or came north to work in the lumber industry in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. While some came from Europe and others from around the Midwest, their stories have a consistent message of community, hard work, and the nature surrounding them in northern Minnesota. Interviewees give numerous depictions of life in a lumber camp and the various jobs they held at lumber companies and mills. Several interviewees fought in World War I, and those experiences are included as well
