Jimmy Hoffa Invited to Minot
I thought this was an interesting bit of information. The front page of the newspaper on July 26, 1963 had an article about a speaker invited for a Labor Day event. That person was James (Jimmy) Hoffa – considered to be the blunt spoken, controversial boss of the world’s largest labor union. The business agent for the Minot Teamsters Union sent a telegram inviting Hoffa to be the speaker at the September 2nd event. He was optimistic that he would attend if his schedule permitted…. As far as I know he did not attend but I may be mistaken about that…..
