Tuesday, November 15, 2022 / Categories: Illinois Heritage, General News Illinois Heritage, November–December 2022 Volume 25, Number 6 Many thanks to all of you who have renewed your membership in the ISHS for 2023, and my deepest gratitude to those of you who took the greater step of supporting our annual appeal, which helps us set the course for the future. Your commitment to the Illinois State Historical Society is noted and very much appreciated. This issue of Illinois Heritage was generously supported by a gift from Janet Miller, a long-time member from Hinsdale. Other members around the state stepped forward to fund our new Social Studies and History Teachers initiative, which generated 17 new memberships in the ISHS. Thank you for your generosity! There is so much history in the November-December issue of Illinois Heritage, and our list of contributors continues to grow. Bucky Halker’s portrait of Woody Guthrie in Illinois is a fascinating look at a 20th century icon not generally associated with the Prairie State, and Dave Joens’ “Breaking up is Hard to Do,” a discussion of Illinois’s contentious sectionalism, explores the many aborted paths to secession in our 204-year history. Chris Suerdieck’s “The First Burger King” tells us about a mom-and-pop hamburger joint in Mattoon that made headlines simply by sticking to a winning recipe, and we say goodbye to Dr. G. Cullom Davis, a friend and colleague who changed the way we do history. Share your Heritage!
