  • I am on the board of directors for OLGA (Ozarks Lesbian and Gay Archives) a member of the Archives division of a local university. Our goal was getting oral histories as well as materials about growing up Gay in the Ozarks. One section of this book is written by one of our members. Myself as well as others in our area are mentioned in the article. It is a privilege and a joy to be a part of something of this historical significance.
    All the articles help to give one a well rounded view of our fair city. A good read and well researched.

  • This book is great. It's about the history of Springfield, Mo. Some chapters read a bit like a textbook, but all in all, it is a very interesting and informational book.

  • The work examines the different cultures that have existed in the city from 1945 until today. I was enlightened to the fact that the city has had a large gay community.
