- Description: Autobiography of Andrew Devich, a Croatian immigrant to Minnesota.
- Andrew Devich (b.1896) was born in Krasno, Croatia. He left Croatia for the United States in 1913, when he was 17. He went to Minnesota, where he joined two of his brothers, who later remigrated. Devich worked in lumber camps and mines in Minnesota and on farms in North Dakota. When the First World War broke out, he and other immigrants, reluctant to fight their relatives at home, were jailed for failure to register for the draft. After their release, they worked in the mines for the duration of the war. Devich was naturalized in 1925 and continued to work in the mines and, when the mines were closed, at various jobs in Buhl.
