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.

Claytonville, Illinois And Vicinity In Review - 1930

Edited from "The Cissna Park News" with 1930 High School Yearbook

Authored by Donald G. Enz
Edited by Donald G. Enz

Claytonville is a small community in central Illinois in the center of farm country. It has lost most of its businesses over the years because of the automobile and lack of job opportunities, but it still has people who are good and kind.
During 1930 Claytonville had several thriving businesses and a population that was willing to help others during the "Great Depression". Having not converted to mechanical means of farming and everyone owning an automobile, these people were very self-sufficient and fared far better than those individuals living in cities.
This book contains articles pertaining only to the Claytonville and surrounding vicinities. These items allow you to follow ancestors on a week by week basis, which will help those interested in genealogy.
I have included the Cissna Park Community High School yearbook for 1930. Students from Claytonville attended the Cissna Park school once they graduated from their "one room" schoolhouse.
