C, which I learned by reading the plaque outside of IRP.
The answer is “c.” Louis Agassiz, a Harvard University zoologist, gave a lecture entitled “The Coral Reefs of Iowa City” which increased interest in the corals. The other answers are made-up choices which I thought sounded plausible.
After Lj's comment, who could say anything but "b"? :)
Yes, the answer is "b." Germans and the Dutch are the two major groups who immigrated to Iowa through the years. Although, Germans outweigh everybody else.
Germans also lived throughout the northside and Goosetown's borders are fluid. It never was 100% Czech.
If you drive on Jefferson St you still see the metal signs with Goosetown.
