There are two Duluthians from WWII who received the Military’s highest honor, the Medal of Honor.  On Tuesday, May 7 2013, Veterans’ Memorial Hall will hold the opening event for an exhibit that showcases one of these local heroes, Major Henry A. Courtney, Jr.

This FREE exhibit will describe Courtney’s brief life, from his Duluth Central High School days where he was known as the “blonde giant,” to his final experiences as a Major in the Marines in the Pacific Theater. This exhibit undoubtedly shows the courage and leadership that Courtney portrayed to be awarded the Military’s highest honor. The event will take place at The Great Hall of the Depot and will begin at 5:30 PM on Tuesday, May 7 2013.

The opening of the exhibit will also be accompanied with great food and beer from a few of our local Duluth establishments.

Veterans’ Memorial Hall was established in 1910 and is a program of the St. Louis County Historical Society. It is the mission of Veterans’ Memorial Hall to preserve and collect veterans’ stories and artifacts and to educate the general public about the history of veterans from northeastern Minnesota. Its website,, features more than 6,000 veteran stories.
