Available for pre-order at Amazon.com

Living and Farming in Pike County
"Eight-year-old Ralph Kern had been a farm boy only two years before Depression and droughts threatened the family's economic survival-but didn't dampen boyhood joys. By the time of World War II, the family had survived, and Ralph chose farming as his career. From then until he left farming in mid-1960s, he proved his ability on four farms with widely recognized crop and hog programs. Still working with farmers in Pike County, IL he gave fuller rein to his passions for fishing, hunting, and collecting farm memorabilia. Now over 80, Ralph has written essays on his life and experiences in farming under adversity and in better times, highlighting his love for machinery. Hunting, with well-loved bird dogs, and fishing in many Midwestern, Northwest, and Canadian rivers and lakes get equal billing. And throughout are memorable people with whom he lived, worked, hunted, fished, and collected for three-quarters of a century."

Stephenson

Original 1915 Broadsheet: Third Annual Program of the Stephenson County Chautauqua at Freeport
"Third Annual Program of the Stephenson County Chautauqua at Highland Park, Freeport, Illinois July 18- 25, 1915 under the Auspices of the Freeport Women's Club. Broadsheet. 41 x 29cm. Later folds. Small photo of Washington under title (in first of four columns on one side of broadsheet). Text on that side gives the program schedule and some details about many of the speakers and other performers. The other side is headed "Our Chautauqua" in large letters and features photos and details about some of the performers. Later folds. Very Good. Washington was to deliver an evening lecture on Tuesday the 20th. A program note states: "The experience of the superintendents has been that Dr. Washington draws the largest crowds and makes the best address of any speaker on the platform, except Hon. W. J. Bryan."
