Biographical or Historical Data: Thomas K. Krasean, an Indiana State Library field representative, conducted a "historical hunt" for Hoosier history in 1966. Krasean set out to collect letters, journals, diaries, maps, broadsides, photographs and manuscripts describing life in the South Bend area from the days as a territory until the time of the Sesquicentennial of Indiana's statehood in 1966. The emphasis of the collection was put on the personal aspect of the state's history, with a strong focus on tape-recorded statements from members of the community relating their experiences and recollections of the past. Persons interested in contributing documents were asked to contact Roger B. Francis, director of the South Bend Public Library. Source: Morrison, Laurance. "Hunts Hoosier History in Personalities."
