About the Author

The author was born October 13, 1905, on a farm near Cleveland, Ohio. Nine years later the family moved to Chagrin Falls, outside Cleveland, where his father opened a photographic studio. Professor Robinson retained a life-long love of photography, but he majored in English at Oberlin College.

After graduation Robinson became English teacher and principal of a small high school in New Lyme, Ohio. His appreciation for history grew into a decision to return to graduate study in American history at Ohio's Western Reserve University. He managed to secure a scarce Depression-era university position in 1935, coming to UND to teach American history, and finished his Ph.D. dissertation the next year.

Robinson's great work emerged from a series of radio biographies on North Dakota's personalities, begun in 1947. Robinson retired from UND in 1974 with the university's highest rank, University Professor. He died in 1988.

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Schmerguls VINE VOICE on April 9, 2001
Format: Paperback
This book is not written in a particularly sprightly style and yet I found it a work fascinating in the extreme. It starts at the very beginning , and I am sorry it only goes up to 1966. The chapter on the Non-Partisan League (1915-1923) was the most interesting. And Bill Langer had a fascinating career, the account of which was made more attention-holding for me because I used to go to the Senate gallery when I was going to law school in Washington and listen to his orations. Unforgettable, since unique. This is a great and memorable book.

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Scott D. Hanson on June 19, 2010
Format: Hardcover
Exhaustive detail about the 1890-1940 political evolutions in North Dakota. Communists. socialists. non-partisan league and republicans. Mostly a history of Eastern North Dakota, but this is understandable given that Dr. Robinson was faculty at UND which is a couple of feet from Minnesota. This is the college text used at UND for many years to teach Nodak history. Excelloent resource for understanding pioneer life on the upper plains, indian wars, communism/socialism in the U.S., the depression and answers the question, "Why do so few people live in North Dakota?" Typical college professor anti-business slant. Very well researched and documented.

I was impressed with the synapsis of the early northwestern fur industry. I would have liked to have a better description on the construction of the Red River carts.
