W.P. Davies Newspaper Columns

Born on a farm in Ontario, William Preston Davies came to the plains of North Dakota at the age of 20. In his early 30s, he began a long career as a journalist, and worked as an editor and writer at the Northwest News, the Grand Forks Plaindealer, and the Grand Forks Herald. In 1930, Davies began writing a daily column called "That Reminds Me". This digital collection from the University of North Dakota's Chester Fritz Library gives users access to his daily insights and observations on North Dakota life. The first column available here dates from April 1930 and the last one is from September 1943. There is nary a subject that Davies doesn't cover, as he winds his way through topics like farm policy, local wit and lore, and Charlie Chaplin.
