To The Herald-Whig:

I want to thank you for partnering with the Historical Society of Quincy and Adams County to publish stories about historical events and people of Quincy and Adams County in your Sunday editions of The Quincy Herald-Whig.

I enjoyed the interesting history columns that Carl Landrum wrote for the newspaper for 40 years before his death.

And now, each week the stories are written by scholars, students, local history buffs and members of the HSQAC and I hope other readers are finding these stories as entertaining and enjoyable as I do.
