College Students and Staff Create City Book


By Rachel Begle

ORANGE CITY, Iowa (AP) - A Northwestern College professor, student and library staffers have teamed up for a book about the history of Orange City.

History professor Doug Anderson decided to create the book, which is set for release in April, after noticing a history book about another city.

He then asked college library director Tim Schlak and systems librarian Greta Grond if they would assist in the project. Anderson noted the two were experts in the college's archives and understood the process of archival photographs and digitization.

When they agreed to join the effort, Anderson sought help from his student assistant, Sarah Kaltenbach.

The 128-page paperback includes details about Orange City's founding in 1869, its growth and the creation of Northwestern College.

It will be published by Arcadia Publishing.
