NEW BOOK: THE HISTORY OF NATIONAL BANKING IN SOUTHERN ILLINOIS

On August 15 the Evansville Courier & Press published an article
about a local man's new book on the history of banking in Southern
Illinois.

"In Pete Fulkerson's former life as a school teacher in Kansas City,
Mo., a student wanting to buy a car sold him a small bag of assorted
old coins and paper money for $50."

"The experience led Fulkerson to a lifetime of researching and
collecting old paper money that bears the names of early banks that
were located in towns in his native Southern Illinois."

"Fulkerson just wrote a new book, The History of National Banking
in Southern Illinois - 1863 to 1935, which includes text and
photographs pertaining to the early money and banks.

He said he didn't write his historical book on banking to make
money, but, rather, for his love of bank history. Fulkerson said
he hopes to break even on the book.

He has the history of 112 banks that were located in 76 towns in
24 different counties in Illinois."

I contacted the reporter, Carol Wersich for more details. The
price of the book is $85.00.  To obtain a copy, write to Fulkerson
at 311 S. Third St., Carmi, Ill., 62821.  To believes she was told
that 100 copies were printed, and 70% had been sold.  So don't delay
if you want a copy for your library (or your society or institution's
library).
