This limited, special edition of The State Journal-Register was produced by James Martin Pepper Kelly for Saturday, August 18, 2017.

It features information gathered through numerous interviews with Springfield residents, as well as information gathered through a variety of archival, print, and physical research.

These conversations and research took place in May and June of 2017 during a residency at the Springfield Art Association.
