Mankato, Minnesota doesn't really have anyone famous from "our era" - unless you include me in that "era"...

The two residents are:

Glen Taylor - owner of the Minnesota Timberwolves (Pro) Basketball Team.
Maud Hart Lovelace - author of the Betsy-Tacy series of children's books.

A resident for a few months while writing a novel:

Sinclair Lewis - lived in Mankato while writing the novel Main Street.

although I live in Bensalem Township...and that is supposedly where Ben franklin did his whole lightening/electricity experiment.
