About this Issue

Note from the Editors

Bill Kauffman starts off this 100th issue of the Crooked Lake Review with a tribute to Ed Harris who furnished so many stories and reminiscences for readers of this publication. Ed Harris and Bill Kauffman were original members of the group of writers that has now become the New Society of the Genesee.

Donovan Shilling, another long-time contributor to TCLR and the proposer of the title, The New Society of the Genesee, for the name of the writer's breakfast group, has compiled a history of the origin and proceedings of the first Society of the Genesee.

Bill Treichler contributes a short history of the formation of the New Society of the Genesee. The proceedings and announcements of the New Society of the Genesee will be regularly featured in TCLR.

In his sixth and final essay in the series "Searching For the American Revolution" Thomas D. Cornell writes of experiencing historical events through unbidden flashes of imagination.

The issue concludes with a short history of TCLR listing the contents of each of the 100 issues and a list of the names of the many contributors, subscribers, advertisers, and supporters of the Crooked Lake Review. Thank you, to all of you for your help and encouragement.

Issue 101 will begin a publication schedule of four times a year for TCLR. The quarterly will consist of 16 pages in much the same format as present, but without advertising and with shortened museum listings. Readers are invited to send photographs of area landmarks along with identifying information to be used as a back page illustration. TCLR does not pay for any material, stories or photographs.

Mrs. Jane Davis who is Historian for the Town of Jerusalem is preparing a subject and author index of TCLR.
