Under Ed’s direction, the Center for the Study of Local Government was inaugurated at Saint John’s in 1967 as a research project designed to determine how best to serve the micro-city. Its primary objectives were to make medium-sized cities interested in their own future and to enlist the help of private and public colleges throughout Minnesota to cooperate in that growth.
Later in its life, the Center for the Study of Local Government was re-imagined as the Center for Human System Development under the leadership of Dr. Dennis Kleinsasser.
This collection of documents showcase the establishment, accomplishments and legacy of the Center. Two letters from Canada and Yugoslavia illustrate the international interest in and relevance of the work at the Center.
