Cultural Studies and Comparative Literature.
Born in the Boston area, Bovey later lived with his grandparents in Wayzata while he attended the University of Minnesota. In 1950, Bovey and his father founded Martin Bovey Films (later to become Martin Bovey Productions). He went on to create numerous documentaries, often using Minnesota and the Twin Cities for the film's subject, among them Saint Paul: Fur Trade to Space Age (1963). His film The Minnesota
Story (1964) was screened at several national and international film festivals.
On September 20, Bovey will introduce a screening of his films Minnesota Twins: Pride of the Upper Midwest (1961; 26 min.) and Play Ball with the Minnesota Twins
(1963; 28 min.) at the Bell Museum. He will also be available for a Q&A.
