Tamara Edevold, Board Member
Tamara Anderson Edevold has been the executive director of the Clearwater County Historical Society for the past 26 years. She is a past member of the MALHM board, and was an inaugural member of the Historic Resources Advisory Committee (HRAC.)
Tamara also serves as the managing director/ coordinator of the Minnesota’s Historic Northwest, a consortium of county and local museums and historic sites in Northwest Minnesota. She has also served in all of the officer positions at least once.
In addition, she is the coordinator for a local non-profit called Northern Exposure to Lifelong Learning, where she plans educational programs for elders in communities in Clearwater and East Polk Counties.
Tamara has a degree in History with a minor in Anthropology from Minnesota State University-Moorhead. She also studied Museology at the University of Iowa, Iowa City. Her first museum experience occurred at age 17 when her family visited the now defunct Rawhide City museum in North Dakota followed the next day with a visit to the Chateau de Mores historic house in Medora; that family trip would set her on her life path.
Tamara lives in Bagley with husband Mark in a never-ending house remodel.
