A part of Bob Dylan's past is now back in Minnesota.
Recently, the Minnesota Historical Society won two poems in an auction that were written by Dylan while he was a student at Hibbing High School in the 1950s.
The poems were saved by a high school friend. It also includes a photo of Bob and a high school buddy on a motorcycle.
"The Minnesota Historical Society is charged with documenting Minnesota culture, not just our history but our culture," Patrick Coleman of the Minnesota Historical Society said. "And I can't think of a bigger cultural giant. We like to concentrate on what make this person a Minnesotan.
"And these two poems and this photograph - this is Bob Dylan at his most Minnesotan."
The Minnesota Historical Society paid $10,000 in the auction for the Dylan items. They will be on display starting by the middle of February.
