Free and open to all.

Join RCHS for a new series, History Revealed, featuring the best of local history authors talking about a wide range of topics drawn from the heritage and traditions of Ramsey County. See our History Revealed page here for more programs, past and future.

Melvin Maas served in both world wars, won three combat medals, went blind in middle age, worked many years for America’s handicapped citizens, and told a few tall tales. Oh, yes, and though he was a conservative Republican, he represented St. Paul in Congress throughout the era of the New Deal. Meet the surprising Melvin Maas in this fascinating talk by Paul Nelson.

Paul D. Nelson is an author and historian. He is the author of numerous articles for Ramsey County History magazine, and Fredrick L. McGhee: A Life on the Color Line 1861-1912, published in 2002.
