The Henderson County Public Library District in Biggsville, Illinois, under the leadership of Mrs. Anita Smith, Library Director, coordinated efforts for the bequest of pictures of Oquawka from the Eileen Nolan Estate, by Mrs. Patti Cook Executor, to be digitized.

It was Eileen Nolan’s wish to share her collection of pictures of Oquawka with the public.

Special thanks to Randy and Mary Crum for lending their Eileen Nolan picture albums to be digitized.

The sorting of the pictures was done with the help of Mrs. Virginia Ross.

Scanning of the pictures was accomplished by library staff members: Mrs. Sandra Dunbar, Mr. Alec Hill and Miss Anna Stevenson.
