moved to Racine, Wisconsin in the summer of 1970 when I was six years
old. We lived in a beautiful big white house on a brick street at 1405
College Avenue, and I lived there until I was eighteen years old.
Hardly a day goes by when I don't think of Racine, even though I now live
far away. For
some reason, Racine has a huge amount of history for such a small place,
and I've enjoyed collecting lots of different history books, pictures,
and stories. Now I'm putting as much as I can on the web in hopes of meeting
other Racine historians.

I think we were supposed to be pretending that we were cold.
