Title: Book description: “A county shaped by hard work neighborliness”Author: Staff WriterPublisher: Pulaski County ExpressDate: 3/14/09Journalist and historian Karen Clem Fritz, with the support of the Pulaski County Historical Society, has gathered this collection of photographs and written the narrative to provide a glimpse of vintage rural Indiana as "grandpa and grandma remember it."Highlights of Pulaski County:- Celebrates the heritage of hard-working residents, from farmers to businessmen.- Revisits favorite county landmarks, some long gone, but many that have survived to the present.- Includes a charming foreword by well-known farm broadcaster Max Armstrong.- Shows images donated from private collections of local residents.Available at area bookstores, independent retailers and on-line retailers, or through Arcadia Publishing at 888-313-2665 or www.arcadiapublishing.com.Title: Our Place in History... A Pictorial History BookAuthor: Staff WriterPublisher: Pulaski County ExpressDate: 3/14/09PULASKI COUNTY is featured in the newest addition to the popular Images of America pictorial history book series, produced by Arcadia Publishing of Chicago. The book was compiled and written by local journalist Karen Clem Fritz. The author hopes "this work will bring to visual life the sights and experiences that have been handed down in lore and legend throughout the history of Pulaski County, and renew the pride and enthusiasm of all those who have roots or a connection to this idyllic spot."A portion of the profits from the sale of this book will be donated to the Pulaski County Historical Society.The book contains over 200 photographs organized into four chapters. Fritz collected the photographs from county museums and libraries and private individuals. She then researched and wrote the captions and chapter introductions.The project required that only original pictures be used (no copies), and computer scanned at a high resolution. This requirement eliminated nearly all the historical photos Fritz has collected over the years, leading her to begin the project from scratch."The silver lining was that I discovered many fascinating photos that had rarely or never been shared before," Fritz says."I was also pleased to 'bring back to life' some nearly forgotten people who helped shape the county, such as newspaperman Ned Gorrell and Congressman Charlie Halleck," she adds.Fritz points out that the book is by no means a comprehensive history of the county. It is, rather, a sampling of the people, places and events that have enriched the county's development.She turned to college classmate and longtime friend Max Armstrong, a farm broadcaster, to write the foreword for the book."Although Max has spent his professional life living and working in Chicago, his heart has always been in the rural countryside and his fans love him for it. I could think of no one more qualified to write the foreword," she says.Fritz grew up in Elkhart County, and earned her bachelor's and master's degrees in journalism, political science and education from Purdue University. She has covered Pulaski County people and events for over 30 years, the last 12 as editor of ExPRESS.She acknowledges the help of many county residents who offered encouragement and support in the book project, especially those who shared photographs. County historian Lynda Irving was instrumental in proofing the book for accuracy. Kewanna author Alan McPherson recommended Fritz to Arcadia for the project.Pulaski County will be available March 30 at county retail locations, including ExPRESS. The Pulaski County Historical Society will also sell the book at events throughout the year.Arcadia Publishing is the leading publisher of local and regional history in the U.S. Its mission is to make history accessible and meaningful through the publication of books on the heritage of America's people and places.
