September 24, 1979, Neenah-Menasha Daily Northwestern
Here is another in our series of oral histories of Neenah-Menasha. This edition is particularly fascinating in that it examines the tension and rivalry between the two cities. There is an interesting note at the beginning by Dr. O'Brien in that his observation was that Menasha residents were well aware of the tension but few in Neenah were aware of it. When I read this, the first thing to come to mind was the quote, "Let them eat cake," attributed to Marie Antoinette, who allegedly spoke it in regard to her people having no bread to eat. I'll leave it to you readers to make of that what you will.
