Adult Events

  1. The Unique History of the Bank of North Dakota with Clay Jenkinson and Dr. Larry Skogen

    August 17, 2022, 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

    Library Meeting Room A

    Join nationally recognized historian, author, and public humanities scholar Clay Jenkinson in discussion with historian and former Bismarck State College president Dr. Larry Skogen to explore the historical factors that led to the development of the Bank of North Dakota at a time of widespread agrarian discontent. North Dakota is the only state with a people-owned bank—as well as a state-owned grain mill and elevator. Skogen and Jenkinson, back in the saddle after their successful BSC joint lecture series, will examine the 1917-1919 origins of the Bank in the work of the Nonpartisan League, led by agrarian radical A.C. Townley.
