It is the graduation season. Saturday marked the date of Elvis Presley’s graduation. 58 years ago today Robert Zimmerman graduated from Hibbing High School in Hibbing, Minnesota. We know him today of course as Bob Dylan. Bob left Hibbing as soon as he could and started to reinvent himself. I wonder what it was like for Bob growing up in Hibbing? I wonder what it was like to have been a classmate of his? Did anyone see greatness in him?

Below is an article from 2009 about the 50th reunion of his graduating class and how the town felt about their most famous graduate.
