About the author:
I was born in 1946 and raised in central Illinois. During my youth, I was lucky to be able to visit my parent's families each summer in two very small towns, Cissna Park and Claytonville, and had, in my opinion, free range over what I did. It was a great and unique experience that allowed my imagination to grow wild.
I started to write and paint at a very early age and have been lucky to be able to continue my creativity my entire life. To do so has caused many difficulties at times, but I wouldn't trade a second of it. Being creative and able to express myself in paintings, sculptures, and writing has made me a better person.
I am schooled and have a BS degree in English, a MA in sculpture, and a MFA in ceramics.

Cissna Park, Illinois In Review - 1930

Edited from "The Cissna Park News"

Authored by Donald G. Enz

Cissna Park is a small town in central Illinois in the center of farm country. It still has the character of the old days when neighbors helped each other out of hard times, or would just have them over for dinner.
During 1930 Cissna Park was not hit as hard by the stock market crash as the cities because the population hadn't switched over to the mechanized world with farm tractors and cars, although the change was beginning. Instead, most of the population was still canning the vegetables and fruits from their gardens and orchards. They were self-sufficient, but not rich.
The book is edited from "The Cissna Park News", a weekly paper, and I selected articles that would be of historical interest and also relevant to today. I also included as much genealogy related material as possible so researchers could follow their ancestors from this area on a week by week basis.
