BINDING OUR STATE TOGETHER: 200 YEARS OF CANALS, RAILROADS, POSTAL SERVICE, INTERURBAN  (Membership Meetings)
7:00 pm to 8:30 pm
Archives at Urbana Free Library (2d floor)
Norm Moline is our first Illinois Humanities Speakers Bureau presenter and a professor emeritus of geography at Augustana College, Rock Island, Illinois.  Illinois has changed from a sparsely settled and minimally connected area to a state with extensive and still evolving transportation links. Transportation and postal service developments have been key factors in shaping the state and the life of our Illinois ancestors. Though the core changes are obvious and perhaps taken for granted, the details and interesting stories along that historical path are fascinating.
