Best of Living in Iowa 106

Dec 15, 2018 | 23 min

In this episode of the Best of Living in Iowa, we’ll revisit our story on three Catholic nuns who were sent to help the people of Malloy and how their work inspired others to be good role models; we’ll explore the life of Iowa native and big band leader Glenn Miller; and step back in time to see a symbol of peace created in a time of war by German POWs interred in Algona.



For 16 seasons, Living in Iowa was an omnibus television series that illustrated what it meant to be "uniquely Iowan." Through compelling human interest stories, it provided snapshots of Iowans representing every walk of life. As part of its 50th anniversary, Iowa PBS will revisit this popular series through The Best of Living in Iowa, a weekly program that features stories gathered from the archives of the original series. From this rich treasure trove of stories, viewers will relive moments from the past and be reminded of Iowa's unique heritage.
