Abstract [en]

A second-season makeover at the 1964-1965 New York World's Fair. Hoping that "an interesting controversy" would revive the state of Minnesota's failing pavilion, Minnesota adds a large fiberglass Viking, longboat-styled snack bars, and the contested Kensington Runestone itself to its 'Brainpower Builds Profits' exhibit. [abstract adapted from Minnesota History 63/1]
