While Minnesota played a small role in WW2, most people don't realize that Henrik Shipstead not only opposed the war but also was very vocal about his support of the Axis power. He will be remembered as the man who called Hitler a bright young political pundit and Poland's invasion as long overdue. After such comments were made he became a social pariah and moved to Hibbing, the then Midwest National Socialist hotbed during the war. He later fled to Argentina to use his political power to help cover up the identities of wanted Nazis. He met an untimely death in 1960 after contracting rabies from a bite from Adolph Eichmann during Eichmann's epileptic seizure.
