Continued: The following is from an undated (ca 1940) Faribault Daily NewsNewspaper: Oscar Harn will be 82 years old next September. Since he moved fromSt. Anthony, then a town, itself, across the river from Minneapolis, hehas seen a good deal of life in the vicinity of Faribault. There'snothing he likes more that to sit down, settle himself comfortably andrelate interesting stories and anecdotes from out of the many thingshe's seen and done in the past. Mr. Harn combines a remarkable memoryof names, places, and events with a real ability for telling a story andthrough his stories a listener can get a picture of life in Faribaultand its vicinity in the time, when, as he says, "the French church wasoutside of town." Mr. Harn has another hobby that works well with hisfondness for reminiscences. He collects old Indian relics, not with thepassion that passion that sends some people out to spade up mounds, butwith a casual, agreeable kind of interest. (article continues on amissing page)
