How's Crops, Dean? (1932)


This edition would not exist without the help of University Archivist & Special Collections Librarian and Associate Professor Meg Miner from Illinois Wesleyan University. She provided us with this unique source. We would like to thank Professor Miner for all of the work she did before handing the research over to us, and for taking such great care of us when we visited the Tate Archives & Special Collections at the Ames Library.

Our gratitude to Illinois Wesleyan University and MacMurray College for providing us an opportunity to conduct on-site research on their campuses and investigate this fascinating moment in their histories. Additional thanks to Depauw University for providing material for this edition, and to Nancy Alikonis for sharing the story and pictures of her father Justin. 

Special thanks to the organizations that enabled this edition to exist: Scalar and SourceLab for providing us with a platform to publish our research and Critical Commons for housing the source online.

Finally, our sincerest thanks to Beth Ann Williams and Professor John Randolph at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign for guiding us throughout this process.
