Harnessed for Industry
August 29, 1976, Appleton Post-Crescent
In 1976, the Post-Crescent's weekly magazine began a series on the future of the Fox River, beginning with a look back at the river and the growth of the Fox Valley. This is the first installment. In coming days, I'll feature more articles of this series, as I found it to be an in-depth snapshot in time of the Fox Valley and how its communities- prosperous or challenged, large or small- pinned their hopes and dreams on the one common thread running throughout, the Fox River.
