UP-COMING MEETINGS / PROGRAMS

LCGHS has been given permission to use State Bank's parking lot next to LCGHS for the program meetings. 
Street construction in down-town Lincoln has limited the parking on the streets in the vicinity of LCGHS.

LCGHS MEETING
 
Sept 18 at 6:30 pm

       The program is about The Logan County War History Committee Collection discovered at the Lincoln Public Library while Bill Donath was doing research for his book, Generosity. The collection consists of six books of information from the period of WW I.

       Three of the books contain legal size pages containing information about the draft, war relief organizations and soldiers.

       The other three books are large album size. One contains letters from soldiers and has 171 pages. One has photographs of nearly 400 soldiers. The third is a scrapbook that contains newspaper articles that follow local events from the early draft registration process in 1917 to the Homecoming in August 1919. 

       Bill made a digital copy of the collection that may be accessed both at the library and at LCGHS. Part of Bill's presentation this evening will be to show the audience how to navigate through the digital collection to find much more information which was not possible to include in his book.


 
All meetings are on the 3rd Mondays of each month (except for December) at 6:30 pm, with
the speaker being first on the agenda. We look forward to seeing you.  Please call Carol Farmer,
Vice-President and Program Chairperson, with suggestions for programs at 217-871-3510.
