The international 4-H movement originated in Clarinda in the early 1900s. In addition to educating her students in traditional subjects, local teacher Jessie Field also stressed practical agricultural skills and began the program then known as “3-H.” Clarinda also is the birthplace of big-band leader Glenn Miller. During the second weekend in June the city hosts the Glenn Miller Festival, one of the largest big-band events in the nation.
