I told Barbara Flanagan at the Star Tribune that I had written a book because she had been writing about those 1801 tap dancers for 30 years. Two weeks later she wrote in her column, "Beth Obermeyer has written a book on her 1,801 tap dancers and . . . it will be published!" I asked her, "Who do you think would like to publish?

Barbara Flanagan Collection(M/A 1994.16.01-78)

Minneapolis newspaper columnist for the Minneapolis Star and Tribune beginning in the 1940s, author, city promoter extraordinaire. Barbara Flanagan was born in Des Moines, Iowa and attended Drake University from 1942-1945, where she pursued a major in drama. After a summer at the Minneapolis Times, she left college and began working in the promotion department from 1945 to 1947. Flanagan was a reporter for the Minneapolis Tribune from 1947-1958. In 1958 she was named the women's editor for the Minneapolis Star and Tribune and worked in that capacity until 1965 when she was named a columnist for the Star. She wrote about "interesting personalities and colorful events. She also used the column as a "constant and effective crusade for city beautification and for the preservation of historic buildings."
Flanagan also authored three books: Minneapolis (1973), Ovation: a Partnership Between a Great Orchestra and a Great Audience (1977), and Minneapolis-St. Paul:Linked to the Future(1997). Her career also involved significant membership participation in various Twin Cities area clubs and organizations. Some memberships included: Minneapolis Society of Fine Arts, Minneapolis Institute of Arts(founding Minnesota Arts Forum), Minneapolis Club, Minikahda Club, Kappa Alpha Theta, Sigma Delta Chi, American Swedish Institute, and Friends of the Minneapolis Public Library. She continued to work for both papers and retired from the combined Star Tribune in 1988. After retirement, Flanagan continues to write her "Flanagan Memo" for the Star Tribune in which she promotes the city of Minneapolis and its civic treasures.
