CURRENT ISSUE - September 2014

In the September 2014 issue of the Indiana Magazine of History, Peggy Seigel takes readers from Grant County, Indiana, to Santa Fe, New Mexico, as she follows the life and career of Hoosier-born Quaker artist Olive Rush. Using diaries and letters, Seigel captures Rush’s ascent from farm girl to art student to esteemed southwestern artist. The article also features a color insert of some of Rush’s exceptional works.

Elsewhere in the issue, Jeffrey Bourdon looks at Benjamin Harrison’s 1888 front-porch campaign, while retired Indiana University librarian Lou Malcomb reflects on her forty-year career and traces the technological changes that have altered the way scholars research Indiana history.

Book reviews include James A. Glass’s assessment of Nancy Hiller’s edited volume, Historic Preservation in Indiana: Essays from the Field, and William Bradley’s look at Rebecca McClanahan’s story of an Indiana family, The Tribal Knot: A Memoir of Family, Community, and a Century of Change.
