David A Friederich (1926 - 2007) wrote an outstanding article, including pictures.  It covers everything from life in the early 1900s to Indians, the KKK, threshing machines, barn raising, and beautiful stories of life in the 1930s.

To honor his work, his daughter,  has graciously given the Clinton County ILGenWeb Project permission to host his article.
