And the West is History

This picture appeared in the Sept. 2, 1988, Herald. The cutline read: “Longtime Durango resident Arvid Alexander is dwarfed by his 11-foot-tall corn stalk growing in his backyard. Alexander’s secret for growing the plant is the seeds come from South America. The plant hasn’t produced any corn yet. ‘But I’ll keep letting it grow,’ 90 year old Alexandar said, ‘and eventually chop it down.’ Alexander, an immigrant from Sweden, has lived in Durango since 1923.”
