The project ended last spring and I got word last week from Eric Fure-Slocum, Assistant Professor of History, that the Civic Stories Project was now live on the Northfield League of Women Voters site.
St. Olaf students in the American Conversations 102 and Intermediate Photography classes worked in partnership with the League of Women Voters to create these photo essays about Northfield-area community leaders. The fourteen leaders profiled in these photo essays are involved in a range of political, civic, and humanitarian endeavors in the local community and beyond (more about the project).
I’ll blog one photo essay per day over the next two weeks.
Robbie and I now have the same Sony NEX-3 cameras so that we can
argue over who’s the better photographer team up and help each other learn photography. We fight over share different lenses, too.

See more of her photos on her Patsy Dew Pix website. I cropped the photo of Patsy on the right from this photo of her, part of the Patsy’s Party at the Arts Guild Flickr album, one of the Northfield.org Flickr albums. It’s not clear who took the photos. The album description from Sept. 2006 reads:
The Fond Farewell Party for Patsy Dew at the Arts Guild this past Friday night (9-22) was great fun. Patsy has left her position of Program Director at the Guild, and after 15 years of her work you can bet there were lots of people with stories to share and tributes to make. Some theater folks did a surprise reprise of one of Patsy’s theater roles, and another group put together a slide show of some of her moments on stage as actor or director. There were dance performances, limericks and poetry, lots of good food and fun. Here are some pics!
