Roberts County

Book Description:

This spiral-bound booklet is a reprint of History of Roberts, South Dakota, written by the Roberts County Centennial Committee, plus excerpts from South Dakota, a Guide to the State, a 1938 WPA project. The tri-color front cover is printed on 80# card stock and has been protected with a vinyl sheet. The text is printed on 60# opaque paper. Although the booklet count is 75 pages, it includes nearly double that number from the original source materials, as we were able to fit two pages of source material on each of the 11" x 8.5" sheet in the new booklet. The booklet primarily consists of a number of individual articles including: Dakota Missions by Martha Morris, Political History, Wilmot Tornado, Vern Sankey Kidnaper, and Reservation Run by Ralph Anderson, Ghost Towns and Additional Remarks on the Reservation Run by Alec McDonald, Wildlife by G.B. Reid, Early Days by Frank Lipovsky, as told by John Stolz, Agriculture and Business and Transportation by Elmer Foss, Windom 1894-1910 by Fred Trende, Military History by Vance Erickson and Lowell Werdal, Historic Sites by Jack Plut, Pioneer Blacksmith by Stewart Cameron, Pioneering in Roberts County by Bennie C. Hanson, Churches by Robert White, Human Interest by Alice Knight, Education by Oscar Swenumson, Grain Buying by Water by Frank Higgins, F and V Railroad by Orlando Bjork, The Coteau Des Prairies by Shirley Safgren, . There are brief histories of the following towns: Sisseton, Summit, White Rock, Corona, Peever, Hammer, Rosholt, Claire City, Victor, Wilmot, Ortley, New Effinton, and Diamond. Other articles include Sounds of an Earlier Day, Political Sidelights, Railroad Follows Steamboat, Dakotans Showed Zeal for Education, Forts Across Dakotaland, Steamboat Blazed Trail, Hart No. 2 (the Viking School), Roberts County Names, Music in South Dakota, the Forgotten Boy Scouts, Religion Pioneered in Dakota Territory and the History of the Pioneer Drug Store. The final part of the booklet is taken from the WPA guide book. The WPA books, produced during the depression, contain much historical material in the form of tour stops. For Roberts County, they include brief stops at the Sisseton Indian Reservation, the town of Sisseton, Coteau Des Prairies, Long Hollow, Red Iron Lake, Clear Lake, Summit, Rosholt, New Effinton, the Renville Monument, Hurricane Lake, etc. There is also a map of the area taken from the book.
