Illinois Heritage, July–August 2023

Volume 26, Number 4

Elaine Evans 0 1493 Article rating: No rating

With the Summer Solstice fast fading in the rearview mirror, we’re setting sights on Autumnal adventures, starting with the ISHS’s Sesquicentennial House of Worship luncheon, which takes place September 23 in Springfield. Next on the ISHS calendar is the Annual Conference on Illinois History, which takes place October 5–6 at Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library.

The July-August issue of Illinois Heritage includes Clifton Jackson’s article on the 1902 racially motivated attacks in Eldorado that shut down a Tuskegee-modeled school before it got off the ground, and Jim Ridings’ curious story about the Aurora mayor who appointed a parrot to run that city’s police force.

The Heritage is published six times per year and is available as a benefit of membership in the Illinois State Historical Society. Individual editions can also be purchased by contacting our office directly. Visit our Membership section for membership options and information.
