Written permission, dated May 13, 2010, from Tom Hanifin, President of the Muscatine Area Heritage Association, Inc.
to Lynn McCleary, County Coordinator, Muscatine County IAGenWeb to present this material.
The HERITAGE VIGNETTES were originally written for use as one minute radio scripts to commemorate our nation’s Bi-Centennial. They were broadcast more than 2,300 times between July 1, 1975 and December 31, 1976, on the Muscatine stations, KWPC and KFMH. Most of them are included in this book.
The VIGNETTES were not written to teach the history of Muscatine. The subjects were chosen at random to tell something of the past events, people and places that made Muscatine’s heritage so colorful… to let you compare the “good old days” with today.
We hope you will pursue the subjects which interest you most in the microfilmed newspaper files of the Musser Public Library from which most of the material printed herein was gleaned.
