Educating Future Generations About Industry in Illinois: First Time a Photograph Appears in a History Text Book

Received my copy of Illinois: Past and Present by Joanne Mattern. Quite delighted to see one of my photos literally pass into the history book, in this case for children. A photo I took of a trader on the floor of the Chicago Mercantile Exchange at the height of the financial crisis in September 2008 shot for Agence France Presse highlights the section on “Big Business” in “Chapter Four: The Industries of Illinois”.
