Obscurity of the Day: Gopher Tales

Here’s one of those locally produced features that take a Believe It Or Not approach to local history. Gopher Tales by Blake Haddon started in October 1935 and ran until at least 1937 (perhaps much longer). All my samples are from Minneapolis Tribune. It is unclear whether Haddon was producing it for that paper alone or if he was a freelancer trying to syndicate it to other Minnesota papers.
