Book, Waukegan Historical Society
Date: 
2000
Edition: 
3rd printing
Abstract: 
"The Waukegan Historical Society was founded in 1968 to help keep the city's history alive. Through numerous programs and presentations the society has provided a record of many of the contributors to Waukegan's growth and importance. Publication of a photo record seems like a natural continuation of this mission. The memorable images collected in "Waukegan, Illinois" are of those people and events that made the city great, and were selected from the society's archives. We hope that many memories may be sparked as one wanders through our collective past."
