Illinois Heritage

September–October 2019; Volume 22, Number 5

The September–October issue of Illinois Heritage straddles a couple of centuries, with articles on the Constitutional Convention of 1870, Humanitarian Jane Addams, and the 1949 St. Anthony’s Hospital fire in Effingham. We jump forward and into the past with our interview with Leslie Goddard, an actor who interprets historical figures from three centuries. And we step outside the boundaries of Illinois for a ride on the riverboat Twilight, just to see our state from another point of view.

Thanks to all who have helped make this issue possible, contributors, donors, advertisers, letter writers, and readers. You’re the best. Share your Heritage!

Our small patch of prairie at the Strawbridge-Shepherd House, here on the campus of the University of Illinois Springfield, is part habitat, part classroom, and all miracle of nature. If you need another perspective on life in Illinois, come visit us. --Photograph by William Furry.
