Illinois Heritage, July–August 2018

Volume 21, Number 4

Elaine Evans 0 2445 Article rating: No rating

David Joens serves as guest editor of this issue of Illinois Heritage. His gifts of enthusiasm, professionalism, and passion for the history of our Prairie State––and most  especially his love of the architectural wonders of our Illinois statehouse––make him a splendid guide. To accomplish his task he has enlisted the help of John Lupton, director of the Illinois Supreme Court Historical Society; Mark Sorensen, past ISHS president and ex officio historian of the capitol; and illustrator William Crook Jr., who has shared one of his exquisite watercolor/pen and ink portraits of the statehouse for our cover. David also tells the story of a twelve-year collaboration between the ISHS and the Illinois House of Representatives to restore an amazing 19th-century montage that now hangs in the state capitol. The montage features individual photos of the entire 1879 House of Representatives.

Thank you for reading Illinois Heritage. Your membership and gifts keep this organization vital and relevant. We cannot serve Illinois history without you.

Congratulations to all the nominees and award recipients for the 2018 ISHS Annual Awards. Every one of these projects reflects great credit on the individuals, historical societies or museums, presses, and communities from which they spring. They also showcase the varied and impressive breadth of our Prairie State history. As we move through and beyond our state’s bicentennial year, we appreciate this opportunity to thank the scholars, curators, and public historians who choose to commemorate Illinois’s past through their creative efforts, thereby encouraging further research and understanding of our state’s history.
