Post World War II Suburban Development of Fridley, Minnesota
The Fridley Historical Society is applying for a grant that will enable us to hire an interviewer to conduct 15 oral histories in order to explore the post World War II suburban development of Fridley, and then have the histories transcribed. Our intention is to cover the years 1945-1970, by which time Fridley was largely developed.
