Abstract

In the northern part of the American Midwest where so many Europeans came as immigrants, an ethnic reawakening characterizes many urban and rural communities. Two communities are analyzed : New Glarus, Wisconsin, settled in the 1840s by Swiss people from Canton Glarus ; and Cambridge, Minnesota, settled in the 1860s by Swedes from Dalecarlia. Both towns have public expressions of ethnic culture, but that in New Glarus is much more overt, better organized and economically lucrative. - ( DWG)
