Abstract:

Includes a bound volume of typed carbon copies (75 p., 1936) containing an introduction, a letter, a poem, and eleven essays that were submitted as entries in an essay contest (Jan. 1-March 1, 1936) sponsored by the Women's Friday Club (Cloquet, Minn.). The essays relate personal accounts of the forest fire that destroyed Cloquet (Oct. 1918). The introduction deals primarily with the town's subsequent damage claims against the U.S. Federal Railroad Administration.

There are also a few papers that provide background information on the contest including newspaper clippings (1936); a list of fire sufferers' essays published in the Cloquet newspaper; and a photocopied excerpt (1976) from a book of essays written in honor of the contest winner, Katharine Luomala, who had gone on to become a prominent Hawaiian folklorist.
