About this event
Description: 
When the Flood of 1935 roared through the Republican River Valley, Harry Strunk sprung into action. The lifetime newspaperman was able to get reservoirs built to hold back the floodwaters. One of the lakes was named after Strunk before he died. “Give ‘em Hell” Harry Strunk of McCook remains the only Nebraskan to be so honored. This presentation looks at the colorful life of the Editor Harry Strunk.
