GEOGRAPHY OF THE HEART

By Steve Mckeown  Veterans for Peace Newsletter  Summer 2017

On August 5th, come join us at the St. Paul Farmers Market from 8:30 to 9:30 a.m. to hand out leaflets to let people know about this street named after the only person from Minnesota to ever win the Nobel Peace Prize, awarded for his work in writing and passing the Kellogg-Briand Pact which outlawed WAR, and still does.


NOTE: The Farmers Market is located at 290 5th St. East in St. Paul. Meet at the Black Dog Cafe between 8 and 8:15 a.m. Across from the Farmers Market on the SE corner.


While pursuing my degree in Geography at the U of M, I took a graduate class taught by a Chinese Professor who emphasized the human perception of Geography, an experiential view we give to space and place. My instructor has long since passed on , but I think he would have been interested in helping us flyer near Kellogg Blvd in St. Paul to make better known what, why, and for whom the street is named after. For those in the Peace Movement perhaps he would have called it “The Geography of the Heart” that goes beyond the physical.

On Aug 5th, come join us at the St. Paul Farmers Market from 8:30 to 9:30 a.m. to hand out leaflets to let people know about this street named after the only person from Minnesota to ever win the Nobel Peace Prize, awarded for his work in writing and passing the Kellogg-Briand Pact which outlawed WAR, and still does. This was the top news story in 1928 and Kellogg Blvd, which is close to the Farmers Market, is relatively unknown in its meaning, much less the Greatest Peace Movement the world has ever seen, which brought this Pact to its head. Come also to meet David Swanson who wrote the book about this Pact called “When the World Outlawed War.” It will do your heart good.
