About the speaker

Tom Morain

Tom Morain was born and raised in Jefferson where his father and brother edited the newspaper for almost 80 years. With three brothers and a sister, he grew up in a storytelling family. He attended Graceland University and the University of Iowa before his wife got a job at Iowa State. When the big game comes in the fall, they’re fickle and root for whoever is winning. He worked at Living History Farms and the State Historical Society before returning to teach at Graceland.
