Dying Man at Engine Throttle
G. P. Irwin Expires Soon After Being Taken From Great Northern Train
Minneapolis, Dec. 7 - Unknown to passengers or trainmen, a dying man's hand controlled the throttle of the east bound Great Northern coast passenger train as it sped on its way from Robbinsdale to Clearwater Junction this afternoon. The dying man was George P. Irwin, the engineer who died a moment after he was taken from the engine in Minneapolis and placed in a hospital ambulance.
Irwin was found unconscious and leaning out of the cab window by his fireman George Ridgeway. Pulling the limp form of his companion back into the cab, Ridgeway noticed the engineer's skull was fractured. Holding the engineer in one arm he controlled the engine with the other and took the train into Clearwater Junction.
Irwin was supposed to have struck his head against a bridge railing as the train left Robbinsdale.

D.F. Morgan is Dead
The End Came This Afternoon at His Home in Kenwood
Severe Professional Labors Brought On the Malady Which Proved Fatal.
D. F. Morgan, counsel of the Northwestern Telephone Exchange company; and former state senator, died at his Kenwood home at 2:30 p. m. to-day. Last Friday Mr. Morgan returned from a business trip to Chicago suffering from an illness resembling apoplexy. Since then he has hardly been conscious, and great alarm was felt for him from the first. He grew steadily worse until the end came this afternoon. He had been a sufferer from heart trouble for years. He was 49 years old.

His Ancestors Migrated From Wales in Colonial Times.
Darius F. Morgan was born in 1854 in Jackson county, Iowa. His paternal ancestors were New England farmers, who migrating from Wales about the middle of the eighteenth century, played a conspicuous part in the revolution. By his mother Ruth Duprey of Meadvllle, Pa., he was descended from a French Huguenot family, which in early colonial times fled from persecution at home to the hospitable shores of the new world. His father, Harley Morgan, was a native of Vergennes, Vt. but in 1842 brought his family west to the Mississippi valley, settling first in Jackson county and fourteen years later in Winneshiek county, Iowa, in which latter county young Morgan spent his boyhood and youth, and laid the foundation of a substantial education in the common schools. In 1876, until which time he had lived with his father, working on the farm in summer and going to school in winter, he began to study law and in the fall of 1877 he was admitted to the bar at Austin, Minn., which city had now been his home for almost a year and where he supported himself as a student as a reporter in Judge Page's court. A year after admission to the bar he went to Albert Lea, where he formed a professional partnership with John A. Lovely, which lasted for ten years. In November 1888, Mr. Morgan was elected to represent Freeborn county In the lower house of the legislature, and in the session of 1889 he was chairman- of the committee on appropriations. In 1890 Mr. Morgan removed to Minneapolis, where he formed a partnership in law with W. H. Eustis which lasted until Mr. Eustis was elected mayor of Minneapolis in November. 1892. In 1893 the firm of Hale, Morgan & Montgomery was organized, and it became in a short time one of the strongest at the Hennepin bar. In 1894 Mr. Morgan was sent to the state senate from the thirty-second district, comprising the Minneapolis fifth and sixth wards, for a term of four years. In the sessions of 1895 and 1897 he served with distinction as a member of the Judiciary committee of the senate. In 1895 he was, in addition, chairman of the finance committee. In 1897 he was chairman of the committee on corporations and a member of the committee on taxes and tax laws. These are among the most important committees of the senate.
Mr. Morgan early became attached to the republican party. His eloquence made him a power on the stump, and his good judgment and conservatism made him useful in party counsel. For almost eighteen years he was a member of the county and state central committees. In 1876 Mr. Morgan was married to Miss Ella M. Hayward of Waukon,
and a son and two daughters were born of the union. In March, 1893. Mrs. Morgan died, and after almost three years had passed by. Mr. Morgan married again. The present Mrs. Morgan was Lizette F. Davis, of Auburn, N. Y. Senator Morgan belonged to but one secret society, the Elks. He attended Gethsemane Episcopal Church with his family.

Rudy Perpich
Source: St. Paul Pioneer Press (MN) - September 22, 1995 - Contributed by Janice Rice

Rudy Perpich, the immigrant miner's son who emerged from the rough-and-tumble of Iron Range politics to become the state's longest-serving governor and one of its most popular and enigmatic political leaders, died Thursday at his Minnetonka home.
Family members said Perpich, 67, died of cancer.
The death of one of Minnesota's political legends stunned friends and associates who were unaware the former governor had been ill, and it marked the end of a three-decade era during which Perpich either stood at center stage of public life or not far from it.
"We won't see another one like him," said former Perpich press secretary Ray Bohn.
Gov. Arne Carlson, who defeated Perpich in 1990, ordered state flags flown at half staff.
"On a personal level, I consider Rudy Perpich a friend and believe he will be sorely missed," said Carlson, who added that Perpich's legacy "includes bringing the Mall of America to Minnesota, championing open enrollment for Minnesota students and hosting Soviet President Mikhail Gorbachev in St. Paul."
According to the Hennepin County medical examiner's office, Perpich died at five minutes after noon Thursday. A statement by the examiner's office said, "Former governor Perpich succumbed to natural causes at his residence today. Family members were in attendance at that time." An official said Perpich suffered from colon cancer.
Funeral arrangements were pending late Thursday. Perpich's wife, Lola, issued a short statement that said: "Rudy died today of cancer. We will send out an advisory with full details as soon as we have made the necessary arrangements. Thank you for your forbearance."
Charm and original ideas
Those who worked with Perpich recalled a charming man filled with a mixture of forward thinking and bizarre ideas, a leader for whom many Minnesotans felt an enduring fondness.
"He really had an upbeat attitude that was genuine," said Senate Majority Leader Roger Moe. "He hugged more people and more people hugged him than any other person I've known in politics."
One of Perpich's closest political allies over the years has been state Sen. Doug Johnson, DFL-Cook, who remembered Perpich as a man who rarely slept and was always in motion.
And while people sometimes scoffed at his ideas, Perpich was ahead of his time, he said.
Ron Jerich, a lobbyist and longtime Perpich family friend, was one of the few who thought something might be amiss.
"I first suspected something was wrong a couple of weeks ago when he called and said he loved us," said Jerich. "But they were private people and you have to respect that and if they wanted you to know something they would tell you. ... Minnesota just suffered a tragic loss."
An advocate for women
When Perpich picked Marlene Johnson as his running mate in 1982, he created a ticket that led to electing the state's first woman lieutenant governor. He also appointed more women to the state Supreme Court, leaving it with a female majority, and named a record number of women to state boards and commissions.
Johnson, now an administrator with the U.S. General Services Administration in Washington, D.C., said, "I think we will be hard-pressed to ever have another governor with the energy and drive he had."
Perpich was born June 27, 1928, in Carson Lake, Minn., near Hibbing. The Iron Range country would become the center of his political world and the roller-coaster economy would fashion his populist political outlook.
In 1946 he graduated from Hibbing High School, and two years later entered the Army. After being discharged he received a degree in dentistry from Marquette University. But politics, not dentistry, quickly became his career focus.
In 1954, Perpich and Lola Simic of Keewatin were married. They had two children, Mary Sue and Rudy Jr., who, along with Lola, survive Perpich.
After a decade on the Hibbing Board of Education, Perpich was elected to the Minnesota Senate in 1962. He served until 1970, when he became lieutenant governor on the DFL ticket with Wendell Anderson.
Political controversy
It was as lieutenant governor that Perpich participated in one of the most controversial events in recent political history, when Gov. Anderson resigned in order to have himself appointed to a vacancy in the U.S. Senate. In December 1976, Perpich became governor, appointed Anderson to the Senate and held the governor's post until his defeat in 1978 by Al Quie in what was dubbed the "Minnesota Massacre" when DFLers lost the governor's office, two U.S. Senate seats and control of the Minnesota House.
In the wake of that defeat, Perpich moved to Austria as an official of a Control Data subsidiary and returned in 1982 to be elected to one of two four-year terms that would make him the state's longest-serving governor with 10 years of service.
In 1990, after earlier saying he didn't plan to run again, Perpich reversed course and announced he wanted an unprecedented full third term. That began a tumultuous political year unlike anything Minnesota had seen. Independent-Republicans endorsed Jon Grunseth, who withdrew from the race as the result of a sex scandal shortly before the election. Grunseth's abrupt withdrawal placed Carlson on the IR ballot and after a two-week campaign, Perpich lost and headed once more for private life.
But that did not mean obscurity, never a word associated with Perpich. Soon after the election he moved to Paris to work in international trade. He was for a time an associate of the late British publishing magnate Robert Maxwell and at one time was reported to be interested in becoming a high official in the Croatian government.
In 1994 Perpich hinted strongly he was planning a rematch with Carlson, and announced he wasn't running only shortly before the deadline for filing for the office, surprising the news media. Perpich announced he would be a candidate in 1998 instead.

Best Known Woman in Minnesota Is Dead
Washington, April 21. -- Dr. Maria Sanford, professor emeritus of the University of Minnesota, and the best known woman in Minnesota, was found dead in her bed at the home of Senator Knute Nelson today. She was 83 years old.
Miss Sanford, who came here to attend the Continental Congress of the Daughters of the American Revolution, apparently was in good health when she retired last night.
When members of Senator Nelson's household went to her bedroom today to summon her to breakfast, it was found that she was dead.
Physicians were called. They said death was due to heart disease, probably caused by overexertion.
Miss Sanford was one of the leading women educators of the country. She was born at Old Saybrook, Conn., 83 years ago and was professor of history at Swarthmore College from 1871 to 1880, coming to the University of Minnesota faculty in 1880 and retiring as professor emeritus in 1909.
