Synopsis

From 1915 to 1971 the large U.S. Steel plant was a major part of Duluth\u2019s landscape and life. Just as important was Morgan Park-an innovatively planned and close-knit community constructed for the plant\u2019s employees and their families. In this new book Arnold R. Alanen brings to life Morgan Park, the formerly company-controlled town that now stands as a city neighborhood, and the U.S. Steel plant for which it was built. Planned by renowned landscape architects, architects, and engineers, and provided with schools, churches, and recreational and medical services by U.S. Steel, Morgan Park is an iconic example-like Lowell, Massachusetts, and Pullman, Illinois-of a twentieth-century company town, as well as a window into northeastern Minnesota\u2019s industrial roots. Starting with the intense political debates that preceded U.S. Steel\u2019s decision to build a plant in Duluth, Morgan Park follows the town and its residents through the boom years to the closing of the outmoded facility-an event that foreshadowed industrial shutdowns elsewhere in the United States-and up to today, as current residents work to preserve the community\u2019s historic character. Through compelling archival and contemporary photographs and vibrant stories of a community built of concrete and strong as steel, Alanen shows the impact both the plant and Morgan Park have had on life in Duluth. Arnold R. Alanen is professor of landscape architecture at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. His previous books include Main Street Ready-Made: The New Deal Community of Greendale, Wisconsin and Preserving Cultural Landscapes in America.
