MN90: A Hero for Hard Times

Description

Minnesotans elected Floyd B. Olson as the state’s first Farmer-Labor party governor in 1930, during the height of the Great Depression. During this tough time, thousands of people across the country were out of work, dealing with bread lines, and losing their farms to foreclosure. MN90 producer Marisa Helms introduces us to Floyd B. Olson, who became the hero Minnesotans were hoping for.
