To the world he is Bob Dylan, the creative genius who brought poetry to rock
music. To a Duluth,
Minnesota doctor who signed the birth certificate on May 24, 1941, he was Robert Allen Zimmerman
and would be until his graduation from Hibbing High School in 1959: a son of the Temple, a child of
the '50s, a boy of the Iron Range.
As Dylan has admitted, "everybody's environment affects him."
Learn here how the immense prosperity
of iron ore afforded his community of immigrant descendants the luxury of constructing model schools,
homes and businesses while satisfying their need for culture and entertainment. Understand the impact
of television, radio and movies attended for free because of family ties. Enjoy visiting the grade school
years, sophomoric garage gigs, high school talent shows, closest pals and first girlfriends.

most famous rock legends of our time --- Bob Dylan
