About the Author

Through images collected and archived in the Winona County Historical Society’s History Center, Walter Bennick, a society archivist, illustrates the history of Winona with a sampling of this extensive collection. Many of the photographs presented in the book have rarely been seen by the general public and have never been published. Though not a native, Walt has lived a good share of his adult life in Winona. As a former teacher, he has explored many aspects of his adopted city and has appreciated what he has discovered.
