Book Description:


After raucous times on the western frontier during the 1840s and 1850s, Iowa City settled into a relatively sleepy existence while its principal industry, the University of Iowa, was finding its way from obscurity into an important Iowa resource. Its once-too-small-to-succeed university hospital has blossomed into a medical and economic powerhouse. Research in widely varied fields, from space science to microbiology, finds fertile grounds and minds. Big Ten football beckons on fall Saturdays.

Author Bio: Bob Hibbs has authored four previous books, including three on Iowa City. He's a third-generation Iowan who landed in Iowa City for college and stayed. He and his high school sweetheart have shared 47 years of marriage and have two sons. A journalist by training, Hibbs spent much of his working lifetime in property management while his wife, Margaret, first nursed and later counseled as a patient representative through 40 years at university hospitals. They have shared the same Iowa City home in a quiet, old ethnic neighborhood since 1968.
