Join RCHS for History Revealed in 2018, featuring the best of local history authors, historians and archaeologists talking about a wide range of topics drawn from the heritage and traditions of Ramsey County.

In 1884, twenty-one-year old Elaine Goodale, a published poet from New England became the first white woman to teach Dakota and Lakota students at South Dakota reservations. She was working at the Pine Ridge Reservation in 1890 at the time of the Wounded Knee Massacre. She met and fell in love with Dr. Charles Eastman, a noted Native American medical doctor who was the physician at the reservation during the tragedy.

They married in 1891 and moved to St. Paul in 1893 where they lived until 1897. During this period, Elaine and Charles began to write and publish children’s stories.

For the article, Charles and Elaine Eastman: Their Years in St. Paul, 1893–1898 by Teresa Swanson, Sydney Beane, and William Beane, published in Ramsey County History magazine, Spring 2018, Vol. 53, #1, click here for the article summary and a downloadable PDF of the entire article.

Terry Swanson, historian and recently retired manager of the Gibbs Farm historic site will examine the life and times of Elaine Goodale Eastman through the lens of her own autobiographical accounts.

Thank you to the Ramsey County Roseville Library for their support of this program.
