Sentimental Journey Books

The “Sentimental Journey” series of books document the history of education, the students, and the MHS Alumni Association in three parts. Written by Priscilla Helgo Severson, ’40, the first book, “A Sentimental Journey”, is a well-researched and detailed history of education in Madelia that begins in 1865 and follows our graduates to 1990. Two additional books have been added to the first book in two smaller editions outlining a short summary about each of the graduating classes for that decade, hence the supplements: 1991 – 2000 “A Sentimental Journey Continues”; and 2001 – 2010 “The Journey Continues”. You’ll enjoy these books as a good read about the growth of education in a small prairie town, or as a sentimental reminder of your school days and of the people you knew from those days. Oh!!! The stories you could tell with memories you garner from these pages!
