September 12, 1979, Neenah-Menasha Daily Northwestern
Time for another of those great Dr. Michael O'Brien oral histories he conducted in 1979. Today's installment covers the wide ranging social church history of Neenah-Menasha. That comment about Catholics and Lutherans blasting each other is fascinating, though not without precedent in my own life. Once upon a time in the early 70's I had dated a Lutheran girl for a short time. She didn't come out and say it to me, but I got the impression our relationship ended because of her Mom's "problem" with me. Guess old habits (and prejudices) die hard.
