M.T. Publishing Company, Inc. proudly offers the fifth book in a series of Evansville and Tri-State photo history books by Harold Morgan, Home Town History: Planes, Trains, Automobiles and Weather Disasters. Discover our local past through a timeline of events and photos illustrating the history of transportation and weather in Evansville and the Tri-State area.
Fourteen years of steady and constant reading of the Evansville Courier newsprint microfilms at Willard Library and frequent trips to area libraries and history sources by Mr. Morgan provided the raw material for this upcoming comprehensive local history. The author spent his young life living near the Evansville airport and personally experienced several of the historic events during the 1940s and 1950s decades on and near the airport. This book has been on Morgan’s mind for a long time and he is now somewhat saddened to cross it off the bucket list.
This pictorial history will be a 9 x 12-inch, coffee-table-style book with a deluxe hard bound cover featuring 176 glossy, double-coated pages allowing for superior photo reproduction. Reserve your copy now at the special pre-publication price of only $34.95 (plus S/H). You can choose to have your copy personalized with name stamping on the cover for a nominal $7.00 charge.

Harold’s grandfather Wells was one of the first carpenters hired for Camp Breckenridge construction. His family’s first hand experience fueled his interest in WWII.
