The end of the semester is here! We have had a fairly productive semester and are looking forward to next semester.The latest product of our labors is the publication of the Lake Effect Names and Picture Index blog. Although there is still some work that needs to be done with it, the Name and Picture Index blog is now open to the public (I linked to it on the right), and it can help readers to gain a deeper understanding of the book by knowing and seeing the people mentioned in the book. We hope this blog will be a reading aide as well as a wonderful research resource. For next semester, we are planning to set up some interviews to establish an oral history of Waukegan and hopefully hear a different take on what went on in Waukegan. We also wish to accomplish a great deal more, so we are going to hit next semester full steam.
