Barn Keepers Board President Bill Kemp hosted “Central Illinois Barns of the 1940s” in Nov. 12.
His talk was live-streamed on Zoom, because of pandemic restrictions on gatherings.
The event was free, and open to the public.
Bill showcased many of the incredible barn photos and barn-related stories The Pantagraph published in the 1940s.
The McLean County Museum of History, where Bill serves as librarian, holds a collection of some 1 million Pantagraph photo negatives. The Museum is making high-resolution digital copies of negatives, and then posting them to the Illinois Digital Archives.
