Marvin Dauner County Commissioner Papers (S4812)

  • 1974-1986

    Biographical Sketch

    Marvin Dauner of Hawley, Minnesota, was first elected to the Clay County Board of Commissioners in 1974, and remained on the Board until 1986. His twelve years on the Commission were characterized by an attention to detail and a desire to, in his own words, give “an intelligent, not a political” response to the needs of his constituents. In the course of his duties he gathered a large number of county-related studies and documents that address the various concerns of the area.

    In 1986, Dauner was nominated by the Clay County DFL party to the Minnesota Legislature, and was elected in the general election. 

    Collection Description

    The bulk of the collection consists of the minutes of the Clay County Board of Commissioners meetings, and records of other Clay County Offices, including the Planning Commission, Housing Authority, Highway Department, and Welfare Board. A number of special studies on specific issues are also in the collection, such as reports on land use, water surveys, social service programs, and audit reports of the County. A small amount of correspondence between Dauner and various constituents is also included. All materials are in excellent condition.
