OF THE LAWRENCE COUNTY HISTORICAL SOCIETY

            The Lawrence County Historical Society will hold its monthly program meeting on Monday, April 24, at 7:00 p.m., at the History Center on the corner of 12th and State in Lawrenceville. 

The featured speaker will be Judy Cresap, who will present a program on the history of postcards in America. 

Cresap, a resident of Seymour, Illinois, is a lifelong collector and dealer in postcards, and will talk about the origin of postcards, how they changed over the years, and how they became one of our most common forms of written communication.
