Illinois Fact Book and Historical Almanac, thoroughly indexed, is the first publication to bring Illinois statistical facts, general information, and history together in one book, concisely and authoritatively. The differences in the constitutions of Illinois from the first, adopted in 1818, to the present one, adopted in 1870 , are discussed in this book. The chapter on state officers contains a short biography of each person holding office in the thirty-nine administrations. The persons included in the chapter on famous Illinoisans run the gamut from A to Z.
And answers to all questions such as production of farm products and minerals, recreational areas and state parks and museums, athletic and sports records, will be found in this Illinois Fact Book and Historical Almanac, the preparation of which took almost two and one-half years of full-time work on the part of John Clayton, plus thousands of hours of research by others. The authoritative volume of narrative history and statistical information will be an important reference book for libraries, public officials, and the general public who maybe interested in the accomplishments and history—from the days long before statehood—of Illinois.
The book is an Illinois Sesquicentennial volume, sponsored by the Sesquicentennial Commission. John Clayton is a former foreign correspondent for the Chicago Tribune and a Chicago public relations man and trade paper editor.
