MITCHELL, S.D. — Aberdeen native Mark Vaux has spent more than a decade working in economic development in both North and South Dakota, most recently in the Fargo-Moorhead metro area. But he was looking for a place where he could take a leading role, live closer to his family and be in a location where the civic and community leaders were pulling in the same direction. And Mitchell caught his eye. Vaux, 56, was named the executive director of the Mitchell Area Development Corporation and the Mitchell Area Chamber of Commerce on July 27, and he started the new job last month.

BISMARCK, N.D. — The North Dakota State Archives’ oldest materials reach back well before statehood and territorial times.
