WIMBLEDON, N.D. This town is one step closer to honoring its historic railroad past and its most famous resident at the same time.
Norma Egstrom, known to the world as Peggy Lee, was a product of the railroad. She did her father’s job as a depot agent for the Midland Continental Railroad when he was unable to. After she graduated from high school in Wimbledon in 1937, she quickly followed her own talents and became a household name with singing and songwriting talents.
