In March 1961, seven South Dakota governors gathered at the KELO studio in Sioux Falls to record a 30-minute educational program. The governors spoke about the challenges and accomplishments of their times in office, from 1937 - 1961. It is one in a series of for-credit history classes offered by Dakota Wesleyan University in Mitchell, likely the first distance education program in South Dakota.
