Elaine Evans / Monday, March 20, 2023 / Categories: Illinois Heritage, General News Illinois Heritage, March–April 2023 Volume 26, Number 2 From the Editor This issue of Illinois Heritage is full of fascinating stories about Illinoisans who have made a difference in Illinois and Midwestern history, starting with Robert Preston Taylor, a lawyer and scientist who worked at the Illinois State Museum for decades designing exhibits and dioramas. William Edgar Brotherton was a WWI aviator who flew with famed pilot Eddie Rickenbacker before being shot down in France. And in this issue we unveil a new ISHS public history initiative, “The Land and the People Hold Memories,” an opportunity for post WWII citizens to write about their experiences between 1946-1975 and be published in a forthcoming volume of Illinois non-fiction narratives. We also begin a new series called “Eating Illinois,” which focuses on dining experiences in exceptional locales. Thanks to all who have renewed their 2023 ISHS memberships and given us the momentum to move into our 124th year, to continue publishing the Journal and Illinois Heritage, and to celebrate our Prairie State history and culture. Thanks for all you do to share our common heritage.
