Literature

LiteratureTraces on the Landscape

In 2017, I attended UM Homecoming in Missoula and met Beta Delta brother Doug Midgett ’61. Doug attended the traditional homecoming luncheon on Friday at the Press Box Sports Bar and was distributing copies of a book titled "Traces on the Landscape" written by his father Kent. It traces the history of the Midgett family which immigrated from Illinois to the town of Sumatra, Rosebud County, Montana in 1914. It is very personal in its description of family life and challenges and details the period when the Milwaukie Railroad induced thousands to homestead Montana by marketing it as a rural paradise with free homestead land available for the taking. Many thousands, including the Midgetts, moved there lock, stock and barrel.
