Morning Star, December 21, 1997, pg. 3

[Originally entitled "Christmas Greetings"] This week Iíd like to extend Christmas greetings to all our readers, and hope youíve enjoyed my historical articles this past year. Being "on my own" historically speaking, these past few years have been a challenge, but thanks to our readers supplying me with photographs and information and the support of the Morning Star, this column continues week by week. Let them know you appreciate this column.

Iíd also like to encourage you to give your relatives a little something extra thatís different for Christmas this year, that is, some of my Albion history materials. These are inexpensive, but make great gifts and will surely get people talking about the past and about growing up in Albion. I still have some copies of my Ethnic Tour of Riverside Cemetery programs left for both 1996 and 1997, as well as other materials. Stop by the Albion Chamber of Commerce and get some copies in time for the Christmas stocking.

This week in our Historical Notebook we present a photograph of Albion Malleable Iron Company executives, officials and foremen, taken at the "Duck Lake Wells," November 11, 1938. How many persons in this photograph can you remember?
