The idea of a Chautauqua on citizen action grabbed center stage. Someone said, “Let’s name it after our most famous hell raiser, Fighting Bob La Follette.” La Follette fought for democracy and economic fairness; he busted trusts, railed against the robber barons’ control over the political system, called for open primaries, workers’ compensation, unemployment insurance and the idea that universities should benefit the communities in which they reside. He thought people and ideas should rule instead of Big Money.
Fighting Bob Fest was born.
