Nisswa Area Historical Society to present program on local inventor

Dr. Harold Kletschka, M.D.

Posted: August 6, 2013 - 5:11pm

Barbara Kletschka, sister of the late Dr. Harold Kletschka, will talk about life growing up on the north shore of Lake Hubert at a Nisswa Area Historical Society program at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 14, in the Itasca Room of the Gull Lake Center at Grand View Lodge.

Dr. Kletschka was educated in the one-room Lake Hubert schoolhouse and went on to graduate from the University of Minnesota Medical School, beating tremendous odds to become “father” of the artificial heart.

Barbara Kletschka has published a book about her brother’s life, appeared on television and radio programs, and spoken across the country about her brother and life on Lake Hubert.

The program will include dozens of historical photographs in the Nisswa area. It is open to the public. Refreshments will be served.

For more information, call Cindy Terwilliger at the Nisswa Area Historical Society at 218-963-0309.

The historical society is committed to keeping the Nisswa area’s history alive. It is a 501(c)3 organization.
