Iowa has a history with grapevines that goes back more than a century. New York lawyer Hiram Barney obtained a tract of land in southeast Iowa as part of the Half-Breed program following the American Indian Wars and created the White Elk Winery. German settlers in Amana tended community vineyards for communal wines. Before Prohibition, the Council Bluffs Grape Growers Association grew grapes and shipped them eastward by the ton. In the early 1900s, the state was among the nation's top producers of grapes. Pesticides, weather and government subsidies ended the time of the vines of the prairie until their recent return. Author John N. Peragine details the rise, fall and resurgence of the industry in the Hawkeye State.
Inspired by ‘Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls’ and ‘Rad Women A to Z,’ Iowa State education professor Katy Swalwell is working with over 25 Iowa women artists and RAYGUN to create a children’s book that celebrates the incredible accomplishments of a diverse set of women throughout Iowa’s history.
For more than one hundred years, Campustown has served the students and community of Iowa State University. The originally residential neighborhood west of Ames was born in the early 1900s, when the school compelled students to seek residence off campus. However, local government overlooked the neighborhood, and it fell behind the achievements of Big Ames. After the boom of the previous decade, community leaders organized a secession movement in 1916. It took nearly a quarter century, but the neighborhood finally connected to the grid of public utilities. Author Anthony Capps takes readers on a journey from Campustown’s roots, through its vibrant years in the 1960s to current projects breathing new life into the district.

Hancher vs. Hilton: Iowa's Rival University Presidents by Matt Kuhns.
In the late 1950s presidents of rival schools the University of Iowa, and Iowa State, began a several-year feud which redefined both institutions. While President of Iowa State, James Hilton worked to transform the "state college" into a broader university. But Virgil Hancher was deeply suspicious of the prospects for two, competing state universities after years of struggle to obtain funds for the University of Iowa, and fought hard for an alternate vision. The result was a contest over educational philosophy, petty administrative details and bottom-line financial advantage. The rival presidents fought in public forums, and behind the scenes in remarkably pointed memos and meetings. The product of more than two years’ archival research, "Hancher vs. Hilton" reintroduces the largely forgotten individuals behind two iconic names, whose full stories have gone untold for more than 50 years.

Ames began as two communities. At its founding in 1864, Ames Station, on the Chicago & North Western Railways main line, lay two miles east of Iowa Agricultural College, across the Squaw Creek. When the Ames & College Railway joined the college to the town in 1891, a cooperative spirit emerged that exists to this day. A rich history of achievements and colorful characters marks Amess 150 years. One founding father commanded the 20th US Colored Infantry in the Civil War, while a Confederate veteran served as commander of the Iowa State College corps of cadets. Physicists at Iowa State College developed the uranium refinement process for the first atomic bomb and established the Ames Laboratory, the smallest US Department of Energy National Laboratory. Companies like Collegiate Manufacturing made material for the soldiers in World War II, and Kingland Systems now stands among global leaders in reference data software. Ames's businesses, citizens, and institutions, past and present, have created a rich community heritage for a vibrant, 21st-century city.

For more than 40 years, Iowa has held the first-in-the-nation presidential caucuses. A vibrant political culture has emerged as a result of this role, and Iowa voters have a unique opportunity to get to know the nation's presidential candidates as they travel the state, attend small-group meetings, and hone their messages. Candidates come to Iowa--where "retail politics" is the name of the game--early and often. But the campaign trail in Iowa isn't just about candidates. It's about average Americans in small-town diners, church basements, and high school gyms. In an age of public cynicism about politics, the Iowa caucuses continue to demonstrate the importance of real people talking about issues with would-be presidents.
