Regan Collection

The Regan Collection is a set of 36 binders of newspaper clippings covering the years 1859 to about 1912. It was compiled by John Regan, a retired attorney from Decatur, IL. This portion of his collection covers many of the Logan County Newspapers. It contains a wealth of information. Mr. Regan passed away in 2020 at the age of 109. This collection was digitized &  indexed by Bill Donath, volunteer for the Logan County Genealogical & Historical Society. This collection has two levels of index. There is an index showing which volumes in which a given name is referenced. Once that is determined, opening the proper volume leads to an index that gives the page numbers on which a given name occurs. Some of the volumes have as many as 500 pages.
