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.
